UPDATE: Mr. Lif dropped “Let Go,” the third and final single from his upcoming album Don’t Look Down, earlier today. Featuring serene vocals from Selina Carrera and a funky sample compiled from an organ, Down is shaping up to be a sonic departure from the Boston MC’s work with Def Jux. Give it a listen below.
Esoteric Boston MC Mr. Lif is dropping his first album in seven years called Don’t Look Down this April. The first single “Whizdom” was a hazy trip down memory lane for fans, but “World Renown”, his collab with California MC Del The Funky Homosapien, takes that one step further
The track is a voracious back-and-forth between Lif and Del the likes of which we haven’t heard since Del and El-P’s “Offspring” from Both Sides Of The Brain. Peep the track below and make sure to pre-order Don’t Look Down.
