Chris Orrick & The Lasso: I Read That I Was Dead (Stream)

Having already been blessed with one album from Chris Orrick this year, I feel particularly lucky to be able to share another stunning release from the Detroit MC. Departing from the sound of Out To Sea, this time round the Mello Music Group artist has teamed up with label-mate, The Lasso, to create an altogether different album but one which is still very much a Chris Orrick project.

But judging by the first track, it looks likely to be another win for the Detroit rapper. Children of Dirt is available to stream below and I Read That I Was Dead is due for release on 15 November.
