Listen to Tunji Ige’s latest on “Black James Bond,” see him at JUMP Philly’s Red Bull Sound Select gig
Philly rapper Tunji Ige has a knack for straddling worlds – as we’ve noted in the past, his mixtapes have the feel of, well, mixtapes. Poppy club bangers, hard-hitting lyrical jams and dabbles into rock and roll all intermingle in his world, and it makes total and awesome sense.
Ige’s latest is “Black James Bond,” a catchy four minutes structured around a funky go-go guitar lick, a mix of meditative rhymes and auto-tuned hooks reminiscent of Moosh & Twist. That last parallel is apt, since it just got announced that Ige is sharing the Underground Arts stage with Moosh & Twist for a Red Bull Sound Select show on Thursday, April 21st. Also on the bill are Loaf Musik and Michael Christmas, more information can be found here.
Listen to “Black James Bond” below. And meanwhile, don’t miss XPN’s Red Bull show on Thursday, March 17th, featuring Good Old War, Gabriel Garzon Montano and The Morelings. More information on that show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
