Occasionally there’s something distinctly fascinating creeping around the internet, and in a summertime haze, there are sounds that can fill the smokey haze of laidback lounges attach itself to curious lingerings. Filling out that space this time around is PJ Lucid, who just released his new Summer Complex EP a few days ago. You can call him the left coast’s favorite new son, or at least that’s the moniker I’m attaching to his name because his style, his version of Hip-Hop has something special, more so than the average rapper.
Discovery is a wonderful thing when you don’t expect it. Much like walking down the streets of Manhattan’s lower east side and finding a crisp $20 bill.
