Ohbliv - Lewse Joints II

One of RVA’s best beatmakers, Ohbliv, has released a new album called Lewse Joints II, and you immediately become a cooler person after listening to just one track.  Starting off with “Imagination Station,” which I can only surmise is a fucked-up warped, eerie sample of the really old children’s program. The breezy 70s soul jammer sets the stage for what’s to come: badass clips morphed into even more badass loops.

I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!
