This week I have four gems that will hopefully start your Monday off the right way! Lion Babe are back with a new song, which also features the legendary rapper Raekwon. The song is from their upcoming “Cosmic Wind” album that drops on 29th March. As always, the song is a vibe and I’m always happy to hear more music from one of my favourite Wu-Tang Clan rappers. I’m still listening to Kehlani’s “While We wait” mixtape and I really love her duet with Musiq Soulchild. They compliment each other so well and that song is definitely one of the ones I play the most from the mixtape.
I don’t know much about Mereba but 6lack prompted her new album, “The Jungle Is On The Way Out” on his IG so I had to check it out. As you all know, I’m a huge 6lack fan so I just had to listen to their duet first! I really like this song and Mereba’s sound so I will definitely backtrack to listen to her previous music too. Last but not least, Dave has finally dropped his debut album, “PSYCHODRAMA” and I had to shine a light on the song “Streatham”. Aside from “Black”, this is another song on the album that I related to. I’m always a fan of our UK rappers sharing snippets of the things they’ve gone through as it gives more insight into their life here. Even if you can’t relate to the experience of growing up in certain parts of London and what that can entail, Dave speaks his truth effortlessly.
