PREMIERE: Colin Munroe - Over It + Pusha T and RZA/Memoryhouse Tracks
With newly leaked tracks with Pusha T, RZA and Memoryhouse, Colin Munroe doesn’t even need me to write about him. He’s got a record on Capitol come 2013, he’s got his Unsung Hero mixtape out September 4 with Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Cassie and K. Flay, he sounds like an alt-rock Justin Timberlake and looks like a Top Shop model. But that’s precisely why I pine for him: he doesn’t even need me (this is how girls work, fyi). Also, his R&B-infused stutter pop is a genre all its own: laden with crunchy bass bits, street samples, mainstream sing-a-longs and everything else in the kitchen sink that makes a great club grind.
