Melt into Quietboy’s soporifically sweet Dream Hop track ‘7’

https://music.apple.com/us/album/7/1515348955?i=1515348959

Lo-fi, subtle, with a pretty ascending musical background of chimes and effected bass backing Quietboy’s vocal, this is hip hop in the style of Future, Lil Tecca, or maybe most-closely, Bladee – all tripping-together flow and autotune vocal effects over chilled, relaxed background. No Boom-Bap stylings or fast, drill-style breaks here, this is laid-back, cool, and mellow, almost trance-like in its chilled-ness.

From Quietboy’s fresh new album ‘Who?’ – thirteen tracks of soft, velvety mellifluous hip hop – this is fresh and airy rap from South Jersey, with a sweet, rounded backing track under Quietboy’s poetic multi-syllabic rhymes and melodic delivery. It’s cool, it’s chill, and yeah, it Quietboy softly lives up to his moniker with a stream of consciousness freestyle delivery and a properly mature sing-song cadence.

Check out ‘7’, and the rest of ‘Who?’, here.
