Dillon Cooper isn’t high on weed; he’s in a State of Elevation. On the latest single off his forthcoming street album, the 19-year-old Brooklynite puts a blunted twist on the boom-bap blueprint he established with previous reader-approved cuts The Best and Survival of the Fittest. Muvafux’ head-noddable breakbeat and jazzy bassline set the mood as Cooper offers listeners a rundown of his recreational activites—from lighting up with his homies to spending quality time with beautiful women (and never texting them afterward, player that he is). As on the artist’s previous feature, Hi-Lite Reel Boston directs the official visuals. Elevation is part of a currently-untitled street album, set to drop via Amalgam Digital in late summer. Watch our pages for release details on the set, as well as all the latest tunes.
