The rapper with the futuristic moniker, Aleon Craft has released today on 2DopeBoyz eight new songs of him spitting over the best of the current alternative indie scene. This is unlike anything heard this year in rap, and the only piece of work that compares is Childish Gambino‘s I am Just a Rapper 1 and 2 mixtapes. Aleon’s Atlanta drawl makes him sound like a mixture of Andre 3000 and Donnis and its a great match with the indie beats. From the man himself:
“Craft Singles is a collection of songs by a few of the artists that I vibe out to on my down time, and who I highly respect. Come take this ride with me, and I know you’ll enjoy it.”
Craft’s got great taste, pun intended, rapping over Matt and Kim, Girls, Cults, Tame Impala, and more. Listen to our favorites, his “Cameras” take and his Mansions on the Moon remix of Washed Out‘s “Feel It All Around” below. Yeah that’s right, a remix of a remix of a remix.
