Musa Reems – Lately I’ve Been Sole Searching

Musa Reems – Lately I’ve Been Sole Searching

AEMMP Records, Columbia College Chicago’s student run record label, has just released their latest endeavor “Lately I’ve Been Sol Searching” by their signee Musa Reems. The project is a showcase of Musa’s lyrical dexterity, poise on the mic and songwriting ability. He has an old school backpacker type of delivery that makes me think of classic Def Jux. I have long been a fan of Musa, after hearing his Another Dos(e) EP I profiled him for our RH First Look last month here.

Every song has a certain grit and hunger to it with a cohesive vibe thanks to Curbside Jones who produced the entire thing; “How Many” stands out for its soulful production and meaningful socially aware lyrics. “What I Like” is in a similar vein with its old school R&B influences and references to Musa’s musical influences in the verses. “What I Like” is a refreshing take on how music is perceived, taking the vantage point of young kids and how they form bonds through mutual interests, including music. The entire EP is a must listen though so stream above and let us know what your favorite cuts are!
