Listen to David Dye’s Heavy Rotation pick on Morning Edition: “Devil’s Whisper” by Raury
About the song, Dye says “He’s part of a new group of musicians called young Atlanta, and he feels that with his music everything is equal – hip hop is next to folk, next to some kind of funk, next to rock. It all makes sense as one music. You really hear that in this song. He talks about the church, he talks about that he’s not a reverend, but as he does that his rap gets more and more intense and you want to say Amen at some point.”
The latest edition of NPR Music’s Heavy Rotation features new songs by Lianne La Havas, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Thundercat featuring Flying Lotus & Kamasi Washington, Yukon Blonde, and more.
