Tef Wesley - Illuminated Skarfaces
Tef Wesley may be a new face in the Booth, but he comes with a soulfully gritty style guaranteed to have old souls nodding along. On newly-leaked mixtape cut Illuminated Skarfaces, the D.C. representer gives listeners a preliminary taste of his time-tested style, delivering gimmick-free, lyrically-acute bars over Grussle‘s retro-informed samples and boom-bap beat. Like what you’re hearing? Plenty more awaits on Wesley’s debut street album, Corner Store Loosies, set to drop March 14, via Inner Loop Records.
