A.J. Crew ft. Rhymefest - Destiny & Desire

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Jeanne Added and Toufic Farroukh
Album:
Daydreams & Nightmares

When your life’s work pulls you in one direction, and love in the other, which do you sacrifice—or can there be a compromise?  If there were a clear-cut answer, I’m pretty sure somebody would have figured it out by now, but, alas, that hasn’t been the case.  On the first official leak off his forthcoming Nightmares & Daydreams LP, Booth newcomer A.J. Crew has linked up with a fellow Chi-town resident to address the eternal friction between romance and life on the road—or, as he puts it, between Destiny & Desire.  Crew’s mellow sung and rapped vocals are sure to impress Booth readers, as is the silky-smooth production, borrowed from French singer Jeanne Added and Lebanese saxophonist/jazz composer Toufic Farroukh‘s Destins et Désirs , but the real highlight comes two-thirds of the way in—just as the track takes an unexpectedly funky turn, Rhymefest hops on board to steal the show with a verse so natural-sounding it’s hard to believe the beat wasn’t made for him.  If this chilled-out “remix/cover” has got your interest piqued, you can hear more on A.J. Crew’s new album, set to hit stores September 1.
