Back in college, I used to play marathon games of Monopoly with my two roommates, which would inevitably decay into a mix of shouting matches and shady deals (one of my friends paid *actual cash* to buy his way out of a game debt). Good times all around.

With "Pass Go," a song off of the Out of My Own Way EP, Columbus rapper and Alive Band to Watch artist Joey Aich spins a more uplifting message from the board game terminology, embracing the phrase as a means of marking the jumping off point to a music career that he's not about to sign over to anybody. "Why sign the deal for property I should own?" he raps.
