Alex Wiley - Thug Angel

Posted 3 years ago
Odd Couple

On early-March promo cut Jerseys & Loafers, Closes Sessions signee Alex Wiley gave us a taste of his “Thug Angel” aesthetic—which, as far as could tell, involves a whole lot of had-hitting flows and a little singing on the side. On the newly-released lead single off his debut street album, the Chi-Town representative expands upon that blueprint, showcasing his variegated flows as well as his melodic hook vocals of a slow-burning beat by Windy City beat duo Odd Couple. Elevator directs the joint’s official visuals. Featuring this cut along with guest appearances by such notables as Freddie Gibbs, Chance The Rapper and GLC, debut mixtape #ClubWiley is scheduled for release June 4.
