While blogs and critics argued over whether Frank Ocean and The Weeknd are some new form of R&B, hip-hop production veteran and Def Jam exec No I.D. assembled his own nouveau alt-soul collective, quietly dropping cryptic EPs featuring surrealist cartoon imagery and amazing songs. I personally think this project is the best in that lane.
Cocaine 80s features No I.D. on beats and concepts, a solid cast of studio guns and highly sought pop songwriter James Fauntleroy II on vocals. Some of the heavyweight guest appearances include Nas and Common.
“Get You Some” is just one sureshot among the group’s growing catalog of ballads, pop anthems and dancefloor treats. You should collect them all.
