Just press play and let that shit ride out.
How better to spark a beautiful Saturday than with some great music. This joint has been on steady rotation since the minute I caught it a couple of months ago. On some backwards steez the video dropped with no mp3. I wanted to do something immediately but wanted to wait till the mp3 was available. The wait is over.
Bottom line, this shit knocks. Donwill of Tanya Morgan comes correct with this one as he pays homage to a record fiend's classic- High Fidelity. It wins across the board. This is how I see it. The beat is a total heatrock- major props due to Astronote for the production. High Fidelity is placed high among the upper echelons of Howfresh's canon of literature and cinema. Heartbreak and hiphop- No Kanye- is my steez- when the video dropped around 2 months ago I was in different spirits so the listening experience was heightened, dropping bombs E-uphoria status- since then Gang Starr Flip the Script has occurred and it keeps flipping but I still get open. The video shows NYC in all its glory- Fat Beats, bOb Bar (aight), and the BK Museum (you know the kid loves BK). And finally the artwork is reminiscent of Sam Cooke's "The Man Who Invented Soul" boxset. Anything evoking memories of Sam is worthy of a mention.
Peep the track and if you dig it, cop. This was the first itunes track I ever purchased. Support that dope shit.
Donwill- Laura's Song Instrumental
How could I mention Sam and not play a joint or 4? Dude is from a different planet. I'm about to cop some donuts so sugar dumpling seemed rather appropriate.

Sam Cooke- Bring It On Home To Me
