BackWordz is a new group featuring frontman/lyricist Eric July combine the street aesthetic of hip hop with metal riffs. They like to call it street hop/metal but we prefer to refer to this movement as the "nu-djent" movement. Regardless, we think the track is pretty fire. The track will appear on the group's debut album, Veracity on Stay Sick Recordings later this year.
Here's what the band had to say about the track:
"'Be Great' is a powerful track that represents everything that BackWordz embodies: unfiltered honesty, and liberty. Nearly seven minutes long, it highlights the diversity of the band; it starts as a rowdy and energetic metal/hardcore song, then takes an immediate change into a lyrical, classic hip-hop track that is reminiscent of the old school story telling days of rap. 'Be Great' then springs into more modern rock record before closing in typical, rowdy BackWordz style."
