Time for some new music from an artist that will surely become a staple here at theCOOL. Baltimore’s own John Regan dropped his Sorry I’m Late LP last month and I’ve been sitting on this golden egg for a second. Shame on me cause this guy is a PROBLEM!
At first listen, John’s voice gave me J. Cole, which isn’t a bad thing at all because I like J. Cole but it didn’t take long for his own message to shine through. Some major names helped Regan on this project including the likes of one Miss Marsha Ambrosious, Nottz, Joell Ortiz, 88 Keys, Naledge of Kidz In The Hall, and so many more. The features hold up but John Regan can definitely hold his own on a track. This guy is great; you guys must download this album. I haven’t steered you wrong yet, so just trust me on this.
My go-to tracks would be “Breath of Fresh Air”, “Yesterday” (featuring Joell Ortiz and Meylin), “She Loves Me…Not” (featuring Drew Hudson), “Nobody’s Somebody” (feat. Nottz & 88-Keys), “All I Got to Give” (featuring Marsha Ambrosious), “She & H.E.R.” (dope concept building off Common’s classic “I Used To Love H.E.R.”), “Stars” (featuring Nicholas Howard), and “Up There With You” (featuring Sha Stimuli, Naledge of Kidz in the Hall & Wayna). As you can see, that’s basically the entire album. When’s the last time I listed practically the entire tracklisting of an album as my go-to tracks?
All right then. Cop this asap, folks. Link’s down bottom, so you have no excuse. Get into John Regan; I like the sound of this guy.
