Crooklin of Smash Brovaz just released “Dedicated to Uncle Rick”, an ode to his late uncle who passed away while Crooklin was in Atlanta for A3C. The self-produced track is one of the more introspective tracks we’ve heard from Crooklin lately, and a touching tribute. Stream/download “Dedicated to Uncle Rick” and read what Crooklin had to say about the track below.
“My uncle Rick was a great man. The song is a 5 minute musical journey that starts with an answering machine message Rick left for me a few years back that makes me laugh every time I hear it. The song moves into another instrumental/remix I crafted up from a 45″ I dug up, next it takes a step into my childhood with the real audio of Rick schooling me on some vinyl in my living room, followed by a verse I crafted over a loop I took from a Jay Electronica track.” – Crooklin
