jelani new Jelani   Away we go (Prod. by Durkin)

The latest track from Jelani and Durkin continues their unstoppable streak of free tunes that started earlier this year with De La Vega. The Harlem-Boston connection has only continued to impress with cuts like OK, You’re Up and Clarity, with the former being one of my favorite tracks of the year thus far. Away We Go features the duo showcasing a more serious tone as Jelani addresses three specific issues across the track’s three verses. It’s one of his most revealing pieces to date and one you’re going to want to spin a few times to fully grasp.
