Resting on one's laurels can be a dangerous thing, but there's nothing wrong with taking a moment to celebrate how far you've come – especially when the result of said celebration is as dope as Brand New Day, the latest mixtape leak from Decatur representative Aleon Craft. 808 Experience beatsmith SMKA sets a blissfully mellow mood with a lush string-piano sample as Aleon reminisces about a time when he had nothing but “a dollar and a dream” For the second and final verses, Motown native Young Scolla and Windy City phenom Mikkey Halsted jump on board to tell equally fresh stories of well-earned success, the latter dropping some killer opening line: “There was a time when I wasn't the man / Nah, I'm lying, I've always been flyer than Peter Pan.” As refreshing as ice-cold lemonade on a sweltering day, this breezy joint will be included on Craft's Mick Boogie/Terry Urban-mixed The Stargazing Soundtrack, set to drop soon on DJBooth. Those lucky enough to be in A-town this Saturday night should head down to the Star Bar to catch the latest show in Aleon's Atlanta Stargazing Tour, featuring Vonnegutt, Sean Falyon and more!
