Let it be known that Aleon Craft and production team SMKA are on point when it comes to creative joints from the dirty south. While sometimes feeling misunderstood as an artist, Craft continues to make a name for himself as an out-of-the-box emcee with an appreciation for all genres of music. Broken Paradise (Solar-Hop Remix) is a prime example of this, as the Freestyle Series alum looks to Mansions on the Moon’s track of the same name for inspiration. The SMKA-flipped beat brings the record full circle with entrancing production that truly compliments both the bars and vocals. Whether you’re on (or off) the fence with AC’s music, listeners should appreciate the fact that there hasn’t been this much funk in Atlanta since the Outkast era (collectively and separately, mind you). If you need further proof that Craft makes his own paradise, lookout for his Craft Singles project, dropping tomorrow, July 19.
