Onra is a French Dilla-inspired electronic beatmaker who's put out dope instrumental records on labels like Fools Gold and All City. He enlists Chicago emcee Chuck Inglish on his latest track, "So Long", off his upcoming album Fundamentals, which promises to channel the '90s hip-hop and R&B Onra grew up with.
We immediately feel the nostalgic influence, but with glossy synths and house-y samples, "So Long" never feels dated. The always en vogue Chuck Inglish lays down smooth raps that blend right into Onra's eclectic production.
Smooth with the introduction, we don't gotta rush it
We can get into somethin', I know your body's wonderin'
I knew this was comin', your heart is thumping
- Chuck Inglish
