"Among the more disturbing things about four hundred pound gorillas are the lengths to which people will go to ignore their presence. The raw jazz jam band vibe of Lifted's debut, Lounge Rap Music - Vol. 1, will inevitably draw comparisons to the first outings of another renowned hip-hop band..."

"..The obective is to provide a musical respite to the redundant thuggery inundating the airwaves. By providing a broad range of sounds ranging from soothing to celebratory to bombastic, Lifted achieves its goal in an impressive fashion."

"..This is is quite possibly the most complete hip hop band since The Roots. And what's more, they seem dedicated to exploring the bounds of hip hop jazz. Lounge Rap Music is definitely an auspicious maiden voyage."

"In the Hip-Hop world, organic live bands are few and far between. But since the recent rise in popularity of live Hip-Hop bands like The Roots, bands that fit this category have become increasingly sought after. Lifted is a band that many refer to as the top Hip-Hop crew in Boston. They have a distinct sound that sets the 9-piece outfit apart. They call their unique sound "LOUNGE RAP", which blends their hip-hop foundation with elements of jazz, funk, and dum and bass."

"Not only can Lifted rock a crowd right, but they embody what is most important, they play with their own instruments and write their own rhymes. A true organic Hip-Hop band, these boys sound professional when they perform live, they are on point. If you are a Hip-Hop lover, a jam band fanatic, or a jazz head, this band is perfect for you."

"..Everyone should go out and find this band! I guarantee you will be pleased."

Lounge Rap isn't sleepy....it's smooth.
