With a new mixtape due out within the next three weeks, Alex Wiley hits listeners with it’s latest single. Teaming up with frequent-collaborator Kembe X, the Chicago duo take turns over some tripped out Hippie Sabotage production on “Right Right.” Vibe out below.
Your sound has changed a bit. Sonically, it’s brighter, but lyrically, it’s a bit darker. How would you describe the evolution of your sound recently?
I don’t know. Honestly, I’ve been trying not to focus on my evolution and let it happen. I don’t have like, set sonic goals for my career, like my 3rd project is supposed to sound like this or whatever. At this point I’m honestly just trying to have fun with my music and make it as enjoyable as possible for the people listening. For the past couple months I’ve been driving myself crazy making this super off the wall experimental music and I started to lose sight of what I loved about rap early on before anyone ever listened and I felt like I had so much to prove. So I decided to make a tape and only give myself 30 days to make it and drop it. It just felt like some squadly ass shit to do.
