Fittingly, when I was asked to write about Memphis spitter June, I immediately recalled his work from a rooftop performance at last year’s SXSW Festival.

One Day, produced by Teddy Walton and using samples from MLK’s I Have a Dream speech, has June and cohort Skewby providing a glimpse into their future success. The dangers of major labels, women and lack of grind all get their fair share of the spotlight as June paints a picture of a conscious rapper whose above the latest street trend - and if you find yourself relating, check out EVOL, out now.
