A song titled Peace might be most closely associated with a flower-power, Kumbaya-like cut, but Express’ Peace packs some serious punch. While the H-Town native might be known for his crusin’ meets swangin’ sound, here he chooses a rock-inspired Chris Rockaway instrumental, which hosts a face-melting guitar riff and some frenzied drumming. Together with guest Envy, Express gives the non-traditional track a hip-hop spin thanks to a gritty flow that matches the intensity and edginess of the beat. Express’ Higher Learning mixtape is due out later this month, but in the mean time you can stream his last Booth feature, Knock It Down.
