Nostalgic for the late-‘80s/early-90’s heyday of Cold Chillin’, the label who brought us Marley Marl, Masta Ace and countless other Golden Age Greats? So are Mulatto Patriot and Simeon Viltz. On the inaugural song release off their first project as Ray Elementary, the Chi-town beatsmith and emcee take us back to that halcyon era. Once Again is more than a simple throwback, however. Patriot incorporates live-band elements (including percussion by drummer Chris Paquette) into his jazzy, retro-inspired instrumental, and Viltz takes an equally eclectic approach on the mic, mixing upbeat motivational bars with tightly-wound wordplay. Windy City phenom and reader favorite Pugs Atomz takes center stage to showcase his inimitable brand of swag on verse two. Has this era-bridging jam whet your appetite for more? While self-titled collaborative debut Ray Elementary as yet lacks a drop date, you can keep it locked to our pages for all the latest news and tunes.
