chixtape 2

The Toronto-to-Texas transplant follows up last year’s Conflicts Of My Soul with his latest project, Chixtape 2 (the official follow-up to 2011’s original). Stream/download below.

Today he follows it up with Chixtape II (the first one dropped back in 2011), and it’s his slickest, steamiest work yet—mellow, dripping-faucet tempos, a casually cool delivery in the vein of Jeremih, music metaphor come-ons inspired by The-Dream. He’s also interpolated a handful of R&B classics—”Pony,” “The Boy Is Mine,” “No Scrubs”—in a way that’s neither obvious nor exploitative, flipping them just enough to usher them into the aesthetics of 2014 without losing their essence.
