THE FREEWAY SERIES VOLUME 2: CRUISE CONTROL – PHIL THE PAIN X 60 EAST
I love that 60 East is this worldly dude who has traveled and accomplished but he writes like a grateful wide-eyed child. He is always expressing his wonder at what life has presented him, his relishing of the work to get his dreams, his love of home and not-home…I’m actually tearing up thinking about all the positive shit this dude is on. The beats from Phil the Pain here are warm, boom-bappy, melodic and hyper-effective for the songs the duo is laying down on this Freeway Series Volume 2 project.
I love concepts on songs like “Almost There”, “Top 10” and “Finally Home”- yes these are recurring themes for him (especially “Almost There”) but he’s just being true to his life and he makes it a compellingly chill vibe in my opinion.
Knock this for the I.E. one time, it’s short and sweet.
