Taken off his latest five-track ‘Astronomical‘ EP, ‘Astronomical Freestyle’ is the lead song off this exciting new release from Adrian Jose, that will certainly get you thinking deeper, while cruising around the streets of this wild world.
Adrian Jose aka Slinky, is a Maryland-raised, now Chicago-based tow truck driver and singer/rapper, who makes that raw edged music, that is packed full of eighty hour weeks, party stories and flows so slick you will run out of hair gel.
The story about being focused while holding things together in your life while pushing your music to another level. Work might be long and hard but you have all these ideas floating around and make a plan to practice your rhythms whenever you get the chance. You have seem how some cats rap and you know that you put more milk in the bowl than most of them.
‘Astronomical’ from Chicago pop/drill artist Adrian Jose, is a tremendous single from an honest working individual who would rather be making music all day, but knows that he needs the bread now so he can bake up and build up his recipe book for a while, until the kitchen is hot enough. He displays a lyrical delivery that is raw and gritty, while being able to relate to the common man.
When you have the self-belief, most things really are possible. Looking to the stars rather than doubting yourself, is the only way to really find out what is out there.
