Raw Poetic - "Dank Ish"

Raw Poetic, aka the duo of MC Jason Moore and guitarist P-Fritz, have mastered the art of jazz influenced hip hop. They've once again teamed with producer Damu the Fudgemunk on their latest single, "Dank Ish." The song is a laid back track that reminds me of the progressive rap of the early 90's. It has a whole PM Dawn, A Tribe Called Quest, and Gang Starr vibe going on. There are just some collaborators that bring out the best in each other, and Raw Poetic and Damu the Fudgemunk do that for each other. "Dank Ish" is just simply a great throwback hip hop song that avoids sounding dated.

Jason Moore says of his band's new single:

“‘Dank Ish’ was initially just a play on a friend’s name, that turned into a mystical journey back to Africa after taking a sip of a drink. What was really in the drink, who knows!”

You can listen to "Dank Ish" below. Away Back In is due out August 25 on Def Presse, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Raw Poetic, check out the artist's website.
