As a frigid, Hoth-like winter wind blows, I'm reminded that my dreams of Canada getting a summer that lasts more than three days are bleak. But if you're lucky enough to be blessed with warm weather this season, you'll love the latest hit from East Coast emcee Tray Jack. Filled with breezy, soul sampling beats courtesy of The Watcherz, the appropriately titled "Old School" is a an anthem for those seemingly never ending summer nights and the mellow mornings that accompany them. The Maryland emcee's easygoing flow that touches on the thrill of spending time with friends and the blend between his bars with the instrumental are the crowning achievements on this track. As far as artists to watch for in 2014 go, it would be a big mistake if Jack wasn't on your list. Throw on your Sperrys, grab your Old Fashioned and give the track a listen down below. Be sure to keep up to date with Tray Jack with his weekly instalment, #TrayJackThursdays.
