This dude seems to be getting love all over the Internet. And since he’s from B’more I had to give him a little light here on our blog too. Seems like John Regan is putting together what could be an underground Hip Hop lover’s wet dream. His upcoming album Sorry I’m Late features a host of indie talent including Marsha Ambrosius, Joell Ortiz, Skyzoo, PackFM, Nottz, Needlz, YZ, 88-Keys and more.
This joint here has John riding solo and sports a really mellow yet dramatic string sample as the MC laments his relationship woes with “H.E.R.” who of course is Hip Hop as the Common sample from his similarly themed track from his “Sense” days lets us know.
This is definitely some chill out shit and I can always appreciate a chorus made up of a bunch of scratched lines from classic songs, a la DJ Premier. Anyone that’s a die hard indie/underground/backpack Hip Hop lover will love this. So check it out and leave a comment with your thoughts.
