"It's been a long winter. Finally releasing my new mixtape. Late Summers," London rapper Jay Prince tweeted last month, as the days were finally starting to get a little longer and the nights a bit warmer.
Finally here, Late Summers takes advantage of Jay Prince's ear for melody and laid-back raps for the kind of music perfect for warm summer evenings. Actually, this is one of those cases where a project's cover perfectly describes the music inside. This is windows rolled down, take-the-long-way-home rap music (even though it's coming from rainy London, somehow).
Equally adept at crafting hooks as he is spitting verses, Jay Prince is the type of artist who could hold down a project on his own, but he shares the love on Late Summers, bringing in P&P favorites Aminé and Avelino as well as Axlfolie, Shakka, Fabienne, and Mahalia for guest appearances.
