Now based out of New Orleans, Connis carries Cambridge, Massachusetts with him wherever he goes. He first made his way onto our outlet following the release of a moving tribute EP to his late friend Rizzo Rackz entitled Waited All Summer For The Weekend, and now he returns with his new album Somebody. At 14-songs, Connis’ soothing raps create immense replay value, forcing you to run this one back a few times. Previously released singles like SPF 30, Salt, and the Radamiz-assisted song Too Many help set the tone for the album.
Taking a look at Somebody as a whole, each song off the album works perfectly as a standalone track while still retaining an overall sense of cohesion. With features from Gogo. Soap.Wav, FELIX!, Blue Mena, Latrell James, and a few others, each supporting cast comes through and helps elevate the album. Somebody is a musical journey that showcases Connis’ undeniable talent. On tracks like Lost Touch, Play Fair, and Thinking Everyday, Connis weaves in and out of a relaxed lyrical grace that is nothing short of impressive.
Somebody follows his 2019 debut Conn(is), a body of work so locally renowned in Cambridge that Connis decided to perform it front-to-back with a live band at the city’s popular venue. The emotive expanse that Connis breathes into existence signals a new and shining voice in the world of music discovery, and it is our lucky day to have experienced it. Check out the new album down below.
