Where has Derin Falana been? The Brampton talent has only released a pair of songs since he put out his Live From Rocky Mountain mixtape last April.
The answer: cooking up more heat. Falana returns today with a new track called "Live From Hollowgrove." Jahmal Glittens (who produced Falana's superb "West") integrates roiling hi-hats, contemplative piano, and girthy bass hits to form what turns out to be a groovy backdrop for Falana's characteristically fiery flow. The hunger is palpable in his voice. He knows the world is his for the taking.
Listen to "Live From Hollowgrove" and follow Falana on SoundCloud.
Lately things have been dominoes
This shit is bigger than fancy cars and designer clothes
This shit is bigger than momma's kid on the honor roll
Few Lucky Charms in my corner I need a pot of gold
