A recent read on the Penned Madness blog led County Grind to Tallahassee-based Skyway, which features a few components that might already be familiar.
The vocal half of the project is laid-back rapper Rufat from the Q-Tip school, who possesses an interesting flow ("I'm feeling like Dave Hoff, cuz I ain't gotta Hassle") and has some collaboration experience with a South Florida fave, Amtrac. Hear them team up on "Kick Back." Kyle Wyss from the psychedelic experimental troupe Blind Man's Colour provides the beats.
In short: This is music for the morning-after-break-up sex and chill-hop of the highest order.
When you hear these, you'll understand why Kanye West likes to chill to Blind Man's Colour at his crib. While this sped-up vocal background on "Out of My Mind" embraces a template closer to 'Ye's older material, there's enough of a dubstep influence on both tracks that'll remind all of the Weeknd's recent efforts.
