Riff: James Blake – “Life Round Here Remix (feat. Chance the Rapper)”

Sep 20, 2013

Run around wonderin’, wanderin’, ponderin’ life/Life ’round here, when/Life ain’t really been ’round here in some times/Sometimes it’s no one ’round here

from Life Round Here Remix lyrics by James Blake

Two unique voices colliding on this understated remix, crackling around each other like static electricity. For Blake it’s business as usual, but for Chance it’s an opportunity to step outside himself and deliberate over life’s more obscure mysteries – a Chicago perspective via London; [LISTEN].
