Vibes

Ladies and gentleman I present to you VIBES! This is a Hip Hop album by an american Rapper Theophilus London, whose Executive Producer is the mighty and legendary Kanye West, Yes! It will be released on the 4th of November and me? I am pretty excited about it for the following reasons;
1 It features the likes of Jesse Boykins III, Devnote hynes, Soko. and Leon Ware
2 I listened to one of the tracks in VIBES titled “Can’t Stop” which features a Kanye West verse which is reminiscent of the old school Kanye.
3 IT’S BY THEOPHILUS LONDON, Duh!! I’ve been waiting for this dude to release an album since Timez Are Weird These Days cause I was hooked to his stuff after hearing it.

So, if you want something different from what you usually hear on radio something with soul, meaning and VIBES I recommend that you get this album, also when you Pre order you get 3 tracks instantly;
