Declaime is releasing an album, Young Spirit, next month. The rapper — also known as Dudley Perkins — shared the project’s first single, “Internally Yours,” with Blu last month, and he returns now with another Cali rapper, Aloe Blacc (though Aloe is more known to the world as a soul singer, of course), on the next song, “Violet Sky.”
Produced by Georgia Anne Muldrow, as many of Declaime’s previous works have been in the past (she’s his partner, after all), “Violet Sky” revolves around appreciating what you’ve got while you’re still around the appreciate it. You know, the “give me my flowers while I can still smell ’em” mantra, which Aloe dives into on the hook over the twinkling, head-bobbing production.
