Ric Wilson is certainly onto something. The Chicago son/activist/rapper extraordinaire graced with the premiere of his infectious debut single and video for the bubbly Louie Lastic-produced gem “You Need Me” in late 2015. Today, however, with his ambitious new EP, The Sun Was Out, getting some well-earned spins, Wilson has graced us with the premiere of his latest; the deceptively powerful war-cry for the fallen and disparaged, “Lost Soul.”
Over a frenetic, yet vibe-worthy synth ambush — provided by producer, Melaniac — Wilson gets into a deeply-introspective mode, shouting out and giving thanks to all of those that have supported him in his artistry with a passionate prayer for his city, his community and his generation of musical misfits, raising the bar with each frantic frequency. If you’ve yet to experience the jubilance of Ric Wilson, jump back and get familiar with one of our favorite young guns in the game. Peep the vibrant and energetic new clip for the single “Lost Soul” below and hold tight for the next transmission as we continue to keep our eyes on his meteoric ascent. You won’t want to miss it.
