On the low, King L might be one of the best rappers doing it right now, and it’s been that way for a little while. The Chicago native best known for his come-up in the drill scene is actually strikingly versatile, and his latest, “Living In The Sky” featuring Toronto singer Jessie Reyez, is a perfect example.
Floating over fantastically mellow production and warm, accenting vocals from Reyez, Louie laces the track with a patient, compelling flow as he offers scattered thoughts on his dreamlike view on life. It’s a fascinating, stream of consciousness style verse, one that’s particularly captivating within the sonic context of the record. This is my first time hearing of Jessie (she has less than 1,000 Twitter followers and far less on Soundcloud), but we’ll be looking out for more.
Stream “Living In The Sky” below, and stay tuned for more.
