#NowListening with Enkore
The Mumbai hip-hop artist shares some of his favorite music that he’s got on loop right now by artists such as Mac Miller, PJ Morton and more
Sammohit – “Mere Jaise”
One of my favorite new Indian rappers, his last single “Mera Basera” was fire and this one is too. He’s definitely going to grow as a lyricist but I already really feel a lot of his stuff. “Gaano ke zariye hi jaante hai haal sab” (through music we know the situation).
August Greene – “Let Go”
It’s a shame that Common’s new album didn’t get the buzz that Jay, Kanye and the ilk receive for their new projects but this is right up there in terms of lyricism, content and especially music with Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins forming the August Greene trio with him. Shout out to Linford (D’souza, drummer) and Samarth (Bahl, guitarist-vocalist) from (Mumbai R&B band) Smalltalk for egging me to check this!
PJ Morton – “Go Thru Your Phone”
Yaar! Kya bolu (Man! What do I say). Such a vibe. One of those love songs where I don’t even have to have anyone in my life to really dig (laughs).
Mac Miller – “2009”
Mac Miller and Big Krit are two artists I put up there with Cole, Kendrick, Big Sean, Wale as my favorite artists of their generation and both their new projects are sick. Mac’s album (Swimming) is a vibe, and just like his last few projects can be played with almost zero skips. “2009” is class production with Mac rapping at his emo best and my favorite from Swimming. His Tiny Desk performance of this song is amazing too.
Black Thought – “Thank You”
The motherfucking GOAT (Greatest of all time). He released an EP soon after his 10 minutes of utter destruction on Funk Flex and this is my favorite cut from it. Shows his lyrical ability as well as emotion.
