Young Chicago rapper Kweku Collins has been attracting attention with his solid single Stupid Rose, a song that features Collins’ bouncy flow over a smooth D’Angelo sample. Upon my first listen of his recently released album Nat Love, I was impressed by Collins’ unique approach to the mellow rap sound. His beats are simple yet warm with soul. His flows laid back but syncopated in a standout manner. I was particularly attracted to the tune Death of A Salesman. The vocal layering works really well with the beat and the catchy hook. Also, Collins’ lyrics about his “Uncle Sam” seem to make points about race in America. Sometimes his relaxed manner seems a bit lazy and some songs felt a bit like filler, but overall Good album.
