John Wells’ Luckee Jordan has been one of the many Baltimore-area projects I’ve had in heavy rotation over the past few weeks.
Today, he dropped his latest track, a soul sampling track called “XXL.” In the track, Wells gives listeners that distinct flow and sound we heard throughout his work. But there are also multiple glimmers of hope sprinkled throughout the realism. It’s a fitting thank you to his supporters, but also just a view into things to come.
While some of the things of the city try to take him under, he still shines and aims to be prosperous and to prosper. It’s a great track and a reminder of why Wells deserves his flowers. Hell, every Baltimore artist deserves their flowers for their own work; we’re talking about John Wells here, though. The Young Swisher produced soundscape lets Wells make the song cry while also just stating that he’s going to be here, in some way, for a long time. Check out the track above via Bandcamp (Bandcamp Friday‘s next week, by the way) and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
