It’s true, Mr. Carmack uploaded “for abby” to his personal Soundcloud account earlier this week. It’s taken a few days to realize just how multiform its beauty truly is. This is the sort of half-muffled and nostalgia-laden tune that reminds you just how emotional of an effect hip-hop can have. This is the sound of late night rain up on the rooftop—of drops slowly trailing down the window. Mr. Carmack has tapped into a very real kind of power, and what “for abby” lacks in banger-status it makes up for in patient dreams.
Mr. Carmack has been especially busy as of late, dropping his White EP and, just prior to that, another gorgeous looise dubbed “Oye Como Va”. But with “for abby,” we must admit, he’s delivered the ideal cut for past-midnight contemplation, and that’s a very generous offering indeed.
Listen to the cut below and check out his West Coast winter touring schedule after the jump.
