Besides what’s going on here in the city where I live, sometimes it’s hard to find younger cats that really get me excited. Not that they aren’t out there, but in this new world we live in, cutting through the clutter to find the gems takes more energy and time than I have. Sometimes, though, the good ones have a way of finding you. Luckily, my laziness didn’t stop Kendall Elijah from locating my ear drums.
One of my billion regrets is not writing about his 2011 EP: Eli Dynamite. It’s a free download, and worth every second of your time and energy (the video for “The Wild” is also not to be missed). Enough of the past, though. Today is about tomorrow, something I think this dude will be a big part of – or at least deserves the opportunity to be.
Once again tapping a classic sample to serve as a foundation for his unique flow and singing style, Kendall Elijah (courtesy producer The Pyrex Kid) channels his inner Otis on “Sittin’,” a new release for your aural pleasure. Don’t even trip, he does it more than justice. But don’t take my word for it. Here it is, no energy needed…just a click, you lazy bastards:
