Connis – Somebody (Album Stream)

Cambridge-native Connis has been a personal favorite for some time now due in large part to both being from the Boston area, and with his steady stream of top notch releases, Connis is paving a way to bring his introspective raps into the national conversations. Balancing Connis‘s personal stories of life and leaving enough room for listeners to add their own experiences into the frame of reference, Connis‘s strengths lie in finding those sweet moments of life, childhood, and growing up and basking in the lessons learned and the time spent.

The 14-track album really has a little bit of everything for listeners of all kind – slow burners like SPF30, hand wavers like with Play Fair, and danceable tracks like Something New and Don’t Call On The Weekends. The album in total is a great dive into the life and mind of Connis, paired well with select features throughout the album from some of his close regional collaborators. While at large, music is trending towards finding a huge smash single and running the course, artists like Connis still hold those personal and artistic values highly and really capitalize on the album format to get their points across. Golf claps indeed.
