New York-based artist 212Laurent’s latest EP blends a lot of hip-hop sounds to create a project that feels familiar but also distinct. I love that the project blends boombap, contemporary hip-hop and even some elements of drill in its sound. The end result helps listeners stay invested in what the artist is putting down. If you want some diverse hip-hop about a variety of topics (ranging from the chill to the more-extravagant to just saying “hey, I’m a real one”), I think this one is for you. Check it out above and support dope music in all its forms.
