Around this time last year, when he dropped off his last feature, GQ‘s biggest concern was Get[ting] Fly. Now, the Jamla Records signee’s got some heavier matters weighing on his mental. On Another Road, single numero uno off his next full-length, he mixes self-assured braggadocio with moodier reflections on the world’s coldness and the inexorable march of time. Sinopsis provides a hazy, atmospheric string backdrop for the UNC alum’s thoughtful bars. Rated Oakland is slated to drop digitally June 24, at which point it will be available for streaming and purchase in The DJBooth.
