Rap artist Souleye demonstrates a consistent ability to craft a catchy, upbeat, inspirational hook and drive it home. His “Hip-Hop Medicine” is a case in point: bold, stabbing synths support a pop-centric “be a better person” chorus. “Follow Your Heart” is an equally bright, optimistic jingle. Perhaps the artist’s best tune is “Wildman” which features guest male and female vocal interplay––he raps the verses; she delivers the catchy chorus, and all of it is caught in the updraft of an impactful arrangement. There’s even a nice bit of saxophone in the finale. It’s clear that Souleye is a polished, skillful artist whose work aims to leave his listeners upbeat, hopeful and inspired.
