Daz Rinko Previews New Project With “SOS” Featuring theMIND

With a new EP slated for release this summer, Memphis’ own Daz Rinko is holding us down with the first single from the project titled “SOS.” The Sprill-produced track opens with cascading plucks approaching from the distance, gaining momentum with Daz’s passionate verses and theMIND‘s soothing hook. Inspired by the recent election of Donald Trump and rising number of homicides in Memphis last year, his latest offering washes over the listener in waves, highlighting each of their talents in a beautifully-executed track.

Peep “SOS” below.

Poetic powerhouse Mick Jenkins has ended the drought with his latest track, “Sunkissed.” For the first solo cut we’ve heard from the Chicago force since “The Artful Dodger,” Da-P of Soulection lays a wavy foundation for Jenkins’ piercing verses, quickly diving into booming 808s and plucked melodies. Jenkins also recruits fellow Chicago artist theMIND, sharing a suave hook to tie the track together.
