Theophilus London Wants You

After a number of leaks, Brooklyn MC Theophilus London has released his newest mixtape entitled I Want You. I Want You is inspired by Marvin Gaye’s self-imposed European exile and controversial performance of the national anthem at the 1983 NBA All Star game and counts LA electrofunk, UK indie, tropical escapade and obscure afropop as its influences. In my opinion, I Want You is a much more consistent effort compared to his more experimental releases such as 2009s This Charming mixtape. Overall the mixtape is pretty chill to listen to and the production is interesting and fits well.
