In terms of song releases, Valentine's Day was not dry as we have another drop from today via Chicago artist Frank Leone. "Huffing Paint" premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show today and it does not disappoint. Singing about the suicide of a close friend, Leone emotionally connects with his fans. For anyone that has lost someone recently, this one hits home insanely hard.
The Chicagoan, who released his album EnterWILD nearly three years ago in 2015, self-produced "Huffing Paint," and we can hear the artist switching up his flow, singing and rapping interchangeably. Leone has worked with fellow Illinois rapper Vic Mensa in the past, and we look forward to seeing what he has up his sleeve for the future.
Nowadays I cry even when I'm in the bank
Getting money through the night ain't ever brighten my day
So namaste, my body, apologies for all the dank
Imma stain my body with my dead brother's name
