  • Artist: Rittz
  • Track: Paradise
  • Feat. Nikkiya
  • Producer: DJ Burn One
  • Album: White Jesus: Revival

I know what you're thinking: “A video from Rittz, and it's titled 'Paradise'? There must be a catch.” Nope—while the Slumerican/Strange Music emcee's past output has always focused on gritty reality over glittering fantasy, it turns out that the often bleak tone was representative of his circumstances, not his general outlook. Having overcome many of the obstacles that were making his life a daily struggle, the A-Town native (and freestyle alum) sounds almost content on his latest feature, which was the inaugural leak off his March re-release of Booth-sponsored mixtape White Jesus. DJ Burn One mans the boards, blending bell samples with slow-rolling percussion as Rittz lets us know how great he feels now that he's left his nine-to-five, cleared his head, and devoted himself to his musical dreams: “Funny how we was talkin' bout quitting last year, and givin' up on the wildest dream, but this year I'm seein' a different alchemy / I see hope...SpeakHer songstress Nikkiya guests, tying the record together with some smooth, hazy chorus vocals. White Jesus: Revival is out now, so what are you waiting for?
