Chicago’s always had a strong representation in the Hip-hop community. Common. Lupe. Kanye West. Three that flew the flag for a long time, and still are, but there’s now an astounding amount of fresh blood coming through as well. Most notably Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa of the Savemoney crew, and now from that same crew Towkio has introduced himself with “Heaven Only Knows”.
The track carries the trademark brightness, positivity and soul of the crew’s sound and is the first single off his upcoming debut mixtape .Wav Theory. He says “it’s my job to make music that you feel, and these songs should make you sing“. Check and check. As Chance enters the fray, the track ramps up its BPMs and he announces “I’m only beginning, behold magnificence“. They make a formidable team.
