On Tayyib Ali‘s last feature, a February song release off his forthcoming mixtape, the Philly representative let us know he was’t about to settle for a piece of the pie—he wants it all. Which isn’t to say that when he gets it, he’s gonna keep it all to himself. As he makes clear on new single Carmelo, his achievements will benefit his whole damn team: “If I make it then we all succeed.” To back the artist’s uplifting bars, DJ Grumble flips a soulful brass/vocal sample. Has this triumphant banger left you hungry for more? Then keep it locked for the latest singles leading up to the 4/20 release of Tayyib’s new street album, the third in his ongoing series, Keystone State of Mind 3: Philadelphia.
