Few people I speak to seem to know who Spree Wilson is, despite his being signed to Jive (which, I suppose, means less today than at any other point historically). Of all the rappers who have recently risen to prominence because they can sing and rap, I’ve felt since I heard him that Spree is one of the most organic, creating music that leans toward pop without sacrificing sincerity or quality. His new mixtape The Never Ending Now is spectacular spring music, well worth throwing on as the weather (at least in NY) leans more toward the beautiful than the grey.
Check out “No Use In Runnin'” and the link to the mixtape below.
