As Hip-Hop continues to evolve and stray further away from it’s original sound, a handful of creatives continue to embody the genre’s classic sentiments; including Fort Washington, MD emcee iQue. The rising rap talent has been making a name for himself in the DMV for the past couples years and returns with a new project titled “Classics 4 Dummies.”
Sonically reminiscent of A Tribe Called Quest, the 15-track mixtape is mostly jazz-hop and loaded with raw and catchy melodies. As suggested by the artwork, inspiration for the tape came from some of music’s most iconic names including Stevie Wonder, Tupac, Michael Jackson, and Lauryn Hill.
Stream the mixtape below and lookout for accompanying visuals to follow soon.
