Alex Wiley has a new sound. The Chicago-born and bred em emcee cooks up a scintillating mix of Hip Hop, Jazz, EDM and Rock into the pot on Village Party 2: Heaven’s Gate. His production is sumn like Kid Cudi, only more tribal.
Alex cuts through the drugged out beats with ease. The rapper has this pitchy chopper flow that simply can’t be stopped. “Yung San Diego” has been on it for a minute but I do think he’s going a little more downtempo with it. Alex was more city before, whereas now he’s really embracing the hippy vibes in California.
I look forward to seeing where The Village 777 artist goes with the cross-genre experimentation next. For now, I’m lighting an L to this.
