Raury’s long-awaited follow-up to his debut EP ‘Indigo Child’ is finally upon us.  Featuring singles ‘Friends‘ and ‘Forbidden Knowledge‘, his first major label album brims with the ‘Hippy Rap’ of its pre-predecessor, and goes on to explore the young ATLien’s darker, more angst-ridden side.  With very few features, ‘All We Need’ is – as expected…

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD – WARM [FT. RAURY]

California Indie/Hip Hop group The Neighbourhood release ‘Warm’, a track intense and dramatic enough to be completely captivating, but is also strangely calm and subdued.  It’ll feature on their upcoming album ‘#000000 & #FFFFFF’ (Black & White) and also features a verse from Atlanta’s Raury.  Stream below via SoundCloud.
