At just 17, Atlanta’s Raury is an old soul born and bred from the digital age of instant gratification. “God’s Whisper” is his rebellious introduction to the world. It’s a righteous ode to living carefree and high as shit, where he and his boys are unafraid to swig from a Henny bottle in a street surrounded by elementary school kids while en route to the hippest bonfire in history.
Pretentious floppy hat and Montana rancher’s jacket aside, “God’s Whisper” is an unusual anthem that’s more like a call to arms for the jaded little monsters of the Adderall era; from a kid who’s love for Andre3000, Marvin Gaye, and Coldplay seem to ride in tandem without getting in each others way.
Don’t compromise young Raury, you’re on to something here.
