North Carolina’s SkyBlew
Okay North Cackalack I see you! SkyBlew sent me his mixtape Kinda Like a Mixtape… But Not Quite… and I’ve been giving it some burn. I’m feeling the young man’s style and his approach. I especially like this little jazzy number. I’m not crazy about the way he say’s “Okay” like he’s trying to brand his own little slogan. That shit is kind of an annoying part of current hip hop to me. Everyone has their little catch phrase and shit. Eh. Doesn’t detract from the song overall though. The jazzy/soulful sample and the chopped up drums are just too smooth and SkyBlew’s honesty comes through loud and clear with his no nonsense lyrics . And he delivers the lines in a semi laid back manor that really match the track. I’m feeling it but why don’t you check it out and tell me what you think.
You can listen to the rest of the mixtape at Datt Piff.
