Play this new Safwaan Mikal record more than once

Everyone experiences music differently. When hearing a song that I like for the first time, the pause button usually becomes my best friend. Why, because I will pause music after every statement or moment that compels me. Before hearing Safwaan Mikal’s voice for the first time, the beat for ‘Eric Brooks’ pleased me. It is one of those trunk-rattling joints you hear playing from someone’s car in the distance; You’ll wonder who the artist is. For me, Mikal’s voice makes him stand out from the pack. Why do you think? It was enough for me to want to tell someone else about it. I am not sure where he is from, as it isn’t much about him online, but don’t let that stop you from connecting to the music.
