TRACKS FOR THE MAX, Curated by Imani Wj Wright [Ep1]

"On The Rise" by O.D.

"Damn!" That's the first word that came out of my mouth when I heard this record. I instantly went into one of my favorite groupchats with a screenshot of this cover and wrote: "LISTEN TO THIS NOW." The slick talk, the menacing production... It's the kind of track that'll have you feeling extra cocky for the day. Shittt, listen to this enough, and the feeling may be everlasting.

"Winners" by Estella Dawn

I've been listening to Estella Dawn for a couple years now, and one thing I ALWAYS appreciate about her is the fortitude she so evidently displays in almost every record. There's no difference here on "Winners". The almost playful riff in tandem with Dawn's earnest vocals make for a victorious listen.

What exactly is the rhythm on this joint? Can you keep up with the differing percussive directions this record provides? Uhh, I did, and I can! Now let me tell you, the singing and rap here are both enjoyable and almost hypnotizing. Not to mention, this is one of the cleanest but simple song covers I've seen in a while. Let's get lost...
