On this newly-released single, project collaborator DJ Phinisey‘s slow-rolling, synth-driven production sets the mood as Powers reminisces about his lifelong love affair with hip-hop, and the ways in which the genre has changed over the years. In between verses, Phinisey steps out from behind the boards to deliver a powerful sung hook.

Keep it locked to our pages for the latest on the project, which as yet lacks a drop date.
