Devontée is on the verge of releasing his new mixtape, the self-made District Vibe. Whether or not the 22 year old Canadian is the finished product is yet to be seen. The first release from the mixtape is Godspeed, a collaboration with Brooklyn-native Joey Bada$$.
In Godspeed, Devontée offers up a powerful autobiographical story, a childhood defined by crime and violence all around him. With sombre instrumentation supporting him, Devontée delivers his heartfelt bars, making the track a moving experience. Bada$$ also makes a solid contribution, letting off one of his most aggressive verses, an angrier contrast to Devontée’s lamentation.
Overall, an excellent showing from the Toronto native, making District Vibe a highly anticipated release indeed.
