Kes - "Love Letter To The West" (mp3)
Recently I posted a video directed by this cat Keston De Coteau, and as it turns out he also raps himself, under the name Kes. He sent me some tracks in these really kind of bizarre, borderline unreadable e-mails where he'd say things like "I am quietly old school if I want to believe it or not but all artist believe the work is alway relevant. I been called lyrical and that's not a famous as it use to be." And I was like damn I wonder if this guy's raps will be this strange, and the aren't really, but he definitely has a unique voice and perspective. This song is my favorite of the ones I've heard, dope beat and it's cool to hear an east coast rapper paying tribute to the west coast.
