‘Blessings’, the latest single from Jae Mansa, sees the North Carolina rap duo collaborate a pair of fantastic emcees, Tee Grizzly, and SL.
At first it seems they don’t have all that much in common; but with a beat this hard, they find a way of harmonizing differences between vocalists, and Jae Mansa, Tee Grizzly, and SL make common cause in the most exciting manner imaginable. Grizzly’s sweet, syrupy flow, SLs laser-like verbal precision, and Jae Mansa’s no-nonsense street lyricism combine to form a whole that’s quite a bit greater than the parts – and the parts are pretty great on their own.
‘Blessings’ is relentlessly entertaining, and the accompanying music video is likewise top notch in its cinematic splendour. The clip plays out like a thriller, complete with stolen money, secret handoffs in alleyways, and beautiful (albeit lethal – of course!) women on a mission. Best of all, ‘Blessings’ ends on a cliffhanger, with the promise of another video to come that’ll continue the story. We can only hope the wait for the next chapter won’t be too long.
