Buddy‘s “Harlan & Alondra” album was one of the few projects that was added to my list of ‘no skips.’ A beautiful project that contained a bit of everything from fun, inspiration, story, & straight up good music. So one can only imagine my excitement when a deluxe version was to be released!
Adding four new tracks with features from 03 Greedo, Guapdad 4000, Kent Jamz, & Dreamville’s own Bas, J.I.D & Ari Lennox (more excitement!) the album only became that much more special. The vibe of the album doesn’t change much with the addition of the new tracks & that’s just fine. Continuing to carry hs dope vibe “It’s Love” is where he lays out what he wants in more detail, while “Link Up” holds a natural dance feel so much so that listeners won’t even realize it’s filled with so many talents. Closing off with “Bad Attitude” which only plays well for the attitude I have when I realize I’m at the album’s end, Buddy’s emotions are strongly felt.
With 03 Greedo currently behind bars, it’s always a nice sight to see that his stardom continues to shine brightly. “Cubicle” fades in with a smooth beat as Greedo’s voice comes in like sunshine. Delivering the chorus along with a verse speaking on the streets that he runs for a living, he ‘rescues’ Buddy from his day job. As their frustrations need to be released, it turns into a scene straight out of ‘Office Space’ as they both deliver a bat to a few items. Per usual, it’s not just studio vibes with the two as they proudly hold down the block. You can stream the latest tracks from Buddy below as well as watch the visual for “Cubicle.”
