Ric Wilson: “Sinner” feat. Kweku Collins, Nick Kosma & Rane Raps

By: Jack Anderson

22-year-old community activist and Southside Chicago resident Ric Wilson has already made a name for himself selling out venues and opening for the likes of The Roots, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DRAM. Wilson found his origins with the renowned Young Chicago Authors organization that also helped kickstart the careers of Jamila Woods and Chance the Rapper.

Following 2016’s The Sun Is Out and Soul Bounce and 2017’s Negrow DiscoWilson released his third EP Banba just today – a six pack of soul-soliciting tracks, packed with a ton of features. One of such feature-frenzy tunes appears halfway through Banba and gives voice to Kweku Collins, Nick Kosma and Rane Raps. Watch out, A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario” and Wu Tang Clan’s “Protect Ya Neck” – here’s a modern day posse cut with a lot more lyrical depth – “Sinner”.

And while it may be impossible to top White Denim in the official Nintendo Switch trailer, we gotta give it up to Tribe Mafia for their recent induction into […]

Daniel Fears: “Say Something”

Here at KUTX and Song of the Day, we try to be as dutiful as we can in providing both an accurate representation of the Austin Music Experience and great tunes. But honestly, all talent aside, for some local artists we often have to dig around to find something that’s actually airwave worthy. Daniel Fears, […]
