Idris Goodwin – “Nomad” mp3
Idris Goodwin brings a hip-hop reflection about leaving home and moving on and up. There is something uniquely entertaining about reading someone else’s journal (with permission, one hopes!) and that’s the magic ingredient here. Over a beautifully crafted electronic music bed, Goodwin takes us from suburban Detroit to Chicago, and on to Santa Fe and beyond, though clever lyrical twists and revelations. The verses add up to an excellent and inspiring story.
“And we whined and complained about the suburban lane, But it made me hit the midnight train to Chicago’s brain.” – lovely.
