Another great one off Odd Couple’s, Liberation. Palm Trees showcases two of Chicago’s younger talents, Qari + Kweku Collins with a hook sung by Jack Red. One of the greatest parts of Chicago’s ever growing hip-hop scene is the ability to watch artists evolve into their own distinct sounds and styles, which these two definitely have. Jack Red’s voice is full and smooth and brings a mellow feel to the west coast influenced hook.
Despite depicting palm trees and sunshine, this song reminds me of gloriously gloomy days such as today.
