Von Poe VII – “Perris Boulevard” (ft Annette Robles)

(@vonpoevii)
Back in November, California emcee Von Poe VII dropped the second single (the first was “Breeze“) from his forthcoming re-release of The Purity of Love and War. Re-working the original 2014 version, this newer version strips away the melancholy, jazzy vibe to instead find him rapping over a Thovo Beats-produced head-nodding, boom bap joint that has a haunting, whimsical sample humming in the distance. The lyrics are the same, with him reminiscing about growing up in his hometown, but his delivery has more of a punch, while Annette Robles (Poe’s childhood friend) echos some of his vocals and talks shit in the background. Give it a listen below, and look out for the album!
