Slim Jeff - Better Late Than Never

I can't think of an album title that is quite as accurate as this one I'm about to drop on you. Welcome to the musical happenings of the talented Slim Jeff. I've written about him before- when he blew my mind with his lyrically exquisite Reparations (check out the video and my previous post here).

The point is he finally let us into his mind and world and released his mixtape and I am listening to it as I write this. I don't have a favorite track yet and I haven't listened to all of it yet but I invite you to click the play button, buy the tape if you like what you hear, let your mind wander as you experience what real creativity and talent sounds like. I love an overproduced fun song as much as the next person, but there's a genuine authenticity missing from 95% of all music released today and if that is what you crave...then this is what you've been waiting for.

Show him some love- check out the mixtape here and let me know what song is your favorite  http://slimjeff.bandcamp.com/album/better-late-than-never-2

Better Late Than Never is a co-curation between artist Slim Jeff & hip-hop producer 80beats. Recording began in 2012 and was completed in early 2014. BLTN blends elements of soul, jazz, funk, and hip-hop, which produces a wavy ambiance throughout. Slim Jeff's virtuoso rap style meshes seamlessly with the canvas of smooth instrumentals.
