Heat! Lyrical assist on “Pleasure Toy” (produced by Adrian Younge) provided by Big K.R.I.T. Bilal has most definitely got himself a hit track off what is sure to be an album full of them (pre-order “In Another Life” via link below). A record that holds maintains the track record, so to speak. Got a throwback feel to it; talking over the ride out portion of the track. Play it and like it.

Adrian Younge Has A Conversation With Odell While In Atlanta For His 1st Performance As A DJ (Video)

How many producers do you know that can say they have worked one on one with the likes of Bilal, Ghostface, Souls Of Mischief and the Delfonics?  Well the only one that comes to mind is Adrian Younge who was recently in Atlanta for his first DJ performance and ArtByOdell sat down with him for an exclusive interview.  They talked about what inspires his musical process what he thinks of today’s R&B and what new albums he has coming out.  He shares with us a great piece of information that he will have 4 albums out by the end of 2015 listen to find out who they are with and what the titles are!

“The level of execution of older music compared to music of today. By bringing in a Horn section, or just literally having a song arranged with complex chords and a  bridge with ill structures rather than just noise put together for a Stripper to dance to.” – Adrian Younge
