Jackson Whalan featuring KRS-One “From the Woods [Remix]”

Hailing from the Berkshires, rapper Jackson Whalan released his album, From the Woods back in January. The album’s titular track just got a remix featuring the legendary KRS-One. Feature bluesy slide guitar over a boom bap beat, KRS leads off with an impressive rapid-fire flow. The chorus is catchy but feels slow because it adheres to the beat so rigidly; Jackson Whalan’s verse starts off doing the same but he switches the flow half way in to showcase some tongue-twisting talent as well. While the country-esque feel of the instrumental might not be everyone’s cup of tea, the talent of both rappers is hard to deny.
