In June, we introduced City Haze to our readers with the Levar Thomas-assisted On My Way. Members of our site dubbed the song a “feel good record,” citing the “throwback vibe” and “smooth flow” as reason for their 4 and 5-star ratings. Now, a little less than two months later, the New York native is back with the second official leak off his forthcoming mixtape, Star of the City. On Dream Boy, Haze is once again joined by Thomas, who asks women everywhere to “open your eyes” and behold the dreams that exist in real life. Spitting creative variations on cliché pickup lines (I wouldn’t try rapping them to a prospective female), Haze sounds right at home over Jimba Frosty‘s grown-and-sexy production. With a little luck (and a breath mint), he should have listeners convinced of his skills (musical and otherwise) in no time.
