Sorry that there haven't been any other posts today. I'm just getting over some major computer trauma that has fortunately sorted itself out. Anyway, I'd like to introduce you to one of the better up-and-coming groups today. Co-signed by 9th Wonder, Kooley High has gradually been garnering a fanbase over the past three years. Composed of emcees Charlie Smarts, Tab-One, and Rapsody, producers Foolery and The Sinopsis, and DJ Ill Digitz, the six members first met while studying at NC State and released their first mixtape, Raleigh's Finest, back in 2008.
Typically the group churns out a laid back, jazz-sampling sound, as exemplified by "Kooley Is High," the title-track to their critically-acclaimed 2009 mixtape, but they at times change the pace with stellar songs such as "What's The Deal" (one of my favorites of 2010 that was featured on Vol. Se7en). If you like what you hear, I highly reccomend downloading Kooley Is High as well as supporting their 2010 album, Eastern Standard Time.
Peace, Love, & N.C.,
