Genre-Bending Duo Operation Underground Releases “Our Rock City”
Operation Underground just dropped their newest single “Our Rock City” early June 2019 and we can’t stop vibing to the eclectic rap/rock fusion. An experimental and explosive new wave sound, Operation Underground weaves through elements of catchy classic rock and smooth hip-hop bars. Easily comparable to legends like The Beastie Boys, Operation Underground has a specific sound that we can’t get enough of. “Our Rock City” is a confident hip-hop anthem that we can’t help but sing along. Operation Underground is here to announce to their haters that they’re here with a new sound, and they're here to stay and take over this new genre they’ve created.
This dynamic duo is comprised of two male indie artists from Denver, Colorado. Both members of Operation Underground grew up in New York near the Ithaca area. Operation Underground was formed in late October 2018 and they’ve shown no signs of slowing down since then. Heavily influenced by Eminem, Nas, Insane Clown Posse and many more, Operation Underground is a refreshing new addition to the underground hip-hop scene and we can’t wait to see what they do next!
