Our favorite songs from the last week or so that we didn’t get a chance to cover:
Mick Jenkins – Earl Sweatshirt Type Beat
A genius wordsmith, the originality of Mick’s bars continue to defy conventional wisdom.
Nafets – Blue Skies
An infectious hook makes Blue Skies irresistible.
CrazyJaZz – Harmonious
An absolute gem of an instrumental with a beautiful piano lead.
Seneca B – Spartacus
A chilled head knocker.
Towkio – Forever Ft. Vic Mensa
Stand out cut about pain and self-medication. Vic and Towkio tackle deep topics against a happy backdrop that only adds to the message.
Matt Muse – Getting To It
Matt Muse delivers a powerful track with a strong unique delivery.
Chase Alex – Madonna Ft. Sydny August
An emotional instrumental and wavy chorus plus a beautiful feature from Sydny August.
Kiraly Payne – Wide Awake
A strong percussion section and motivated lyricism with Kiraly Payne trying to do better in his life make for a potent track on Wide Awake.
Caleborate – Real Person
The title track to Caleborate’s 2017 LP, it is criminally slept on and so is this Berkely-born emcee. He hits Evanston 3/28.
