It’s been a while since I’ve written a music post. I’ve always felt like I was in a relationship with Hip-Hop. It’s been there for me when people weren’t. Kanye’s “Roses” helped me to get over the death of my grandmother. While A Tribe Called Quest’s “Electric Relaxation” was dedicated to my high school crush. I can easily relate any defining moment of my life to a hip-hop track simply because Hip-Hop and I used to enjoy each other’s time. But just when it seemed as if I’m falling out with my first love, a friend of mine put me onto some new music that put that reignited my love for Hip-Hop.
Meet lyricist/singer Anderson.Paak and producer Knxwledge, the two make up the new duo NxWorries. Somewhere between Paak’s raspy sound and cocky lyrics and Knxwledge’s amazing sample of Gil Scott Heron’s “The Bottle, their track “Suede” has been my current obsession.
Now who the fuck called me a player?/ I ain’t one of these young niggas sweating for a paystub/ I’m a coach/I’ma teach these bitches how to lay up
“Suede” is just the first single to come from L.A./New Jersey hybrid, but I’m looking forward to hearing a lot more (especially the snippet at the end of the video). For now watch the Calmatic directed chill visuals for “Suede” below:
