Just like the cold blasts that are synonymous with the Windy City, James Gardin once again breezes through in the form of a welcome and life-sized juxtaposition and drops this warm and catchy ditty, Chitown Boogie.
This fresh new single finds The World’s Most Encouraging Rapper linking up once again with his frequent collaborator, TheyCallMeHeat, to wax lyrical about the peaks and valleys of life in his inimitable every-man style fastened with humorous anecdotes and inconspicuous witticisms.
The piano and flute-laced beat hearken back to the days of classic sitcoms and Kanye West’s College Dropout-era output. It’s the perfect sound for James Gardin to contemplate his past, present and future challenges such as him missing his calling because his phone bill hasn’t been paid. In a world full of filters and fabrications, this sort of honesty is refreshing. This is like therapy in the form of a two-step so get your boogie on.
Chitown Boogie is out now on Illect Recordings.
Written by Christopher Mitchell for Breaking Atoms.
