On Go – [Pretty Liyah]

Last week I was at Schubas Tavern in Chicago for a These Days showcase to see my good friend CP perform, and right after CP’s set, an artist that goes by Pretty Liyah hit the stage and stole the show. I had been hearing about Pretty Liyah from a few different people prior to this, but after seeing her perform, I knew that I had to take a listen to her catalog. Not too long ago, Pretty Liyah teamed up with DJ Shon to release a new mixtape called On Go, and it’s a really solid body of work! One of the main aspects of this mixtape that I appreciated is the range that Liyah showed; there was a certain level of vulnerability in records like the intro + the outro, while there were also braggadocious and light-hearted songs to compliment. This song was definitely one of the best tapes to come out of Chicago this year, be prepared to see it again on our year-end list in a few weeks!
