IKON (Ft. Felly & John River) • "Picture Me Rollin'"
IKON’s “Picture Me Rollin’” takes the namesake of one of the all-time feel good songs and confidently lives up to the title. This is a cross-continental affair, with Chicago's own production powerhouse IKON joining forces with vocalists Felly and John River, from Conneticut and Ontario, Canada respectively. "Picture Me Rollin" is a bright track like the album art suggests, and some especially light and nimble raps from the two guest artists enhances the shimmering effect. IKON’s releases aren’t the most frequent but are consistently high quality, and “Picture Me Rollin’” continues the trend, providing beams of sonic morning coffee out of your speakers.
IKON's most recent loosie before "Picture Me Rollin'", "High Noon", is also worth a listen. If you're interested in diving a little deeper than that, you'll want to find his 2015 compilation project Private Stock, hosting a smorgasbord of Pivot talent (and more) over some truly heady IKON instrumentals.
