Sometimes it takes a few listens to a song before you can fully formulate a full opinion on it. Other times, you can feel a song as soon as the first notes pump from the speakers. Slow Down by DEE WP is the latter and it doesn’t disappoint once the song gets going. These are powerful verses from a thoughtful voice and a beat that brings you along for the ride even if you’re not feeling the heavy vibes contained.
With a gorgeous string outro, this song shows the power of thematic instrumentals in a way that we don’t always get to see outside of the greats and some of hip hop’s classic artists. Here’s an artist who isn’t here to brag to you, but humbly delivers a message with remarkable talent. Without much flash, it’s possible that this song could get overlooked. We need to remember the power music can have when we’re alone. When the party’s over and lying in bed and we want to connect with something, DEE WP is the kind of artist that should come to mind. Look him up when you feel a need to Slow Down.
