Legit is one of a seemingly endless number of emcees on the rise out of Chicago. It’s been a year and a half since he last appeared on Fresh Heir with the Chance The Rapper-assisted “Such A Thing,” but today he’s back with “Curfew,” a new single off his upcoming mixtape.
The gritty THEMpeople-produced record is dark and brooding, heavy on effects and fueled by Legit’s varied flows. The airy hook has a mysterious vibe and works flawlessly in juxtaposition with the punchy, stripped-down bars. Legit has been quiet for a while, but “Curfew” proves that he was doing anything but taking time off during his break from the blogosphere. The growth is evident from a variety of standpoints, and it’s safe the music is only going to get better from here.
Stream and download “Curfew” below. The cut will appear on Legit’s SURPRISE project, due out in April, but in addition, he’s dropping a brand new EP called Thief In The Night tomorrow. We’ll have it here. Stay tuned.
