Inspired by the overall genius of Curtis Mayfield and specifically his track “The Makings Of You” great friend to GFM Priceyall has released some easy listening hip hop to add to your daily sonic servings. Written over top of a Clutchy Hopkins production, the song truly does give a fresh perspective of the possibilities of hip hop, beautifully different and the hook (where Priceyall is joined by Monroe Banks) is quite infectious. Press play and make sure you hit that download button on the player as well because Priceyall is offering this creation up gratis.
