John Walt - Pineapple Wildwood

  • Artist: John Walt
  • Track: Pineapple Wildwood
  • Producer: Saba
  • Album: Dinner With John

In recent months, IKON and Saba of Chi-Town's Pivot Gang have been making big moves in the Booth; the latter was even selected as one of our Top Prospects. Today, another member of the buzzworthy crew makes his grand entrance into the Booth. Pineapple Wildwood is a left-of-center street banger with a hazy, blunted vibe. Saba supports his colleague behind the boards, layering a languid piano loop over jittery double-time percussion as Walt showcases his unique, melodic flow. Like what you're hearing? Then stay tuned for more fresh material leading up to the arrival of the artist's next LP, the 2015-bound Dinner With John.
