For both Your Friend, Kami and Jelani Imani, coloring outside the lines is the norm. Both artists, one on the production side of things and the other as an artist, have built their platforms on the basis of creative ambition, never limiting the reach of their skills with every new release. Today, as they pair together for a new song entitled “I Was @ The Crib,” this raw energy is put on full display.
In regards to sound, the song’s identity is rooted in Kami’s signature, idiosyncratic style of production. From the smooth, overarching melodies to the most minute of clicks and clacks, it’s a living, breathing piece of eccentricity, and one that certainly lays the perfect groundwork for Imani to follow along a similar path. Obliging, Jelani Imani lets loose a barrage of exciting deliveries on this one, as he layers flows, melodies, and notes without ever losing momentum.
With this, as a whole, “I Was @ The Crib” is a perfect look at the endlessly vibrant styles of both Your Friend, Kami and Jelani Imani. Quite clearly, they have something exciting going on, so don’t sleep — check out the new song below!
