South Carolina artist juicethedon has returned with the second instalment of his Buy One, Get One Free series. Raised in Charleston in a household of musicians, the gifted lyricist has consistently been releasing engaging, vibrant tracks lately. Here, reflective, smoky jazz-laced opener “U Know My Name” sets the tone beautifully, conjuring an immersive atmosphere filled with warmth and density. Showcasing juicethedon’s characteristically smooth, dextrous flow, the song kicks the 2-song offering off on a high note.
Next, “4th Quarter” provides wistful, nostalgic instrumentation centred around moody vocal samples and glowing guitars. Underscored by subtle, organic percussion and rich bass, this beat lays a solid foundation for juicethedon’s evocative vocal performance, as he glides over the sentimental instrumentation with ease, delivering verses filled with vivid lyricism.
