Long time readers will know that I tend to be a extra grumpy old man when it comes to modern hip hop, preferring artists that throwback to the 80's and 90's. However, we may have crossed into a period where I'm starting to like current hip hop artists that sound modern. The latest is Ric Wilson. The Chicago based musician has released a new single, "Woo Woo Woo." The latest single sounds like 2021. It's a dance friendly jam, upbeat as humanly possible. You know, things I normally hate. But Wilson's charm is impossible to resist. It's a fun song that could truly end up propelling Wilson into stardom.
Ric Wilson says of the new song: “This song is just about me wanting to talk my shit sometimes and thinking less about how everyone receives and more about me expressing myself freely. Because sometimes you have to smile at yourself & frown at the world to keep from your own madness.”
