Omar Credle, without a doubt one of the slickest and best emcees to ever emerge from the world of music, teamed up with producer Ray West for the mini album "Ray's Cafe". A theme album inspired by the smoky laid-back jazz and blues of the 1970's, the nine track LP makes for a soothing 30 minutes deep dive into the mind of OC; never one to shying away from opening up to the fullest. As for West, who already worked with artists like AG, Roc Marciano and Kurious to name a few, he seems inspired enough from working with the legendary Brooklyn spitter to turn in his finest musical batch to date. I strongly recommend anyone into lyricism and well-crafted beats to pick this up when it drops on January 21 via West's Red Apples 45 imprint. Making the music justice, not only does the artwork look like a lost Blue Print release, the record will be available on both vinyl and cassette! One track from the sessions that didn't make the final release however is a two minute jam called "Just Cause", which instead is now available as a street single below.
