Few tracks can mellow out listeners while simultaneously inducing a feeling of caution and vulnerability. We were combing through our SoundCloud late last night packing it in for the weekend, prior to stumbling upon rapper uhlife‘s eerie production “No Ebola”, crafted by Soulection’s NiceGuyxVinny. Featuring minimal percussion with an occasional whist of bass, uhlife tells The Fader, “I wrote the song with the intention of letting the powers-that-be know that myself and other peoples of melanin in the struggle won’t be squashed out easily,” adding, “no matter what evil forces they try to implement against us.” Upon listen, you can immediately feel that testament. Look over both shoulders before having a listen.
“No Ebola” is off uhlife’s upcoming EP lofeye. Stay tuned for a release date.
