Not featured on the solo tip since February, when he turned heads with his Cannibal Ox-inspired Iron Galaxy [Freestyle], Soul Khan returns to our pages with a freshly-minted video single off his most recent Booth-hosted project. Morning Alone is a narrative jam centered around a character type common in real life, but rarely explored in hip-hop: a woman coping with the death of her spouse. Over Abnormal‘s low-key production, Khan follows the twists and turns of her thought process as numbness gives way to grief. Nicholas Ryan Gant, a Booth newcomer, lends his vocals to the hook. Director Drew Rosenswieg provides an artful visual accompaniment to the emcee’s keen-eyed lyrics. Fans can find Morning Alone and many more quality cuts on Khan’s Psalm EP, available now for streaming and digital purchase.
