Chicago rapper Lunxch (formerly known as Sage, the 64th Wonder) is back with a new single, and it was one of the best new releases of the past week. Lunxch has always rode his own wave, and he does so literally on this track by incorporating smooth wave sample blended wonderfully with a mellow piano and boom-bap style production.
The beat is mellow enough to make you drift away with the instrumental, but Lunxch makes sure to keep you paying attention to his lyrics by delivering some great braggadocious bars. After about 25 seconds of just the instrumental opening the track, he finally starts his verse with saying “I’m living my wave/Fuck what you say,” that quickly grabs you back from the reverie from the opening instrumental to let you know he means business.
The assertive bars mixed with the soothing production captures a well-rounded ambiance that will make you fall into a musical bliss. So sit back, listen to the track below and just “Breathe.”
