After a couple 2dope loosies and b-sides, Alex Wiley returns with the first single off his upcoming Sophomore mixtape, Village Party. Calling on fellow Chicago native Mick Jenkins, “Own Man” features the two rocking over some Odd Couple production. Check it out below and get ready for the tape this Spring.
It’s a way more honest and personal project. I want people to feel like they really know me when they listen to something. People are listening to me now from all over the country, and when I visit their city, I want it to feel like a friend coming into town.
On a basic level, I’m better at rapping and also talking about experiences. Village Party is introspective but with a different bounce. It’s eloquent.
