Artist: Salomon Faye ft J. Cole & Eryn Allen Kane
Track: Live and Learn
“You know the game build, destroy, tetris”
Salomon Faye exclaims on his highlight track ‘Live and Learn’ featuring J.Cole and Eryn Allen Kane. The early use of this metaphorical message from Faye focuses on overcoming tribulations, in a track which delves into the cynicism of his mind-set and his questions of reality. Coming off of his newly released EP ‘King Salomon’, it stands out with key features from platinum selling artist J.Cole and up coming artist Eryn Allen Kane. Cole’s raspy harmonies smoothly complement Faye’s inquisitive tone, reflecting Cole’s nuance for insightful rap, as he commands this selective style. The strong vocals of Kane naturally uplift the neglectful disposition of Faye’s lyricism by quickly adding a tinge of warmth through her heart felt delivery, offering a voice of reassurance and hope against all the odds. The poetic simplicity of Faye’s writing sets him apart as one to look out for in the near future, as we all know it is not every day that you get a feature from legendary musician and DreamVille king that is J.Cole.
