The Wiley Ones - "What I Am"
This week, in line with their Super Bowl shows, The Wiley Ones will release their video/single "What I Am." It's their first new song to be released in nearly nine months and it continues in their patented brand of acoustic hip-hop grooves. The one nice thing about The Wiley Ones is that they continually present an ever-positive vibe. The refrain here is "What I am is love, your love is what I am," good vibes radiate everywhere throughout the song. If this song is any indication, their upcoming third album will be pretty terrific. On "What I Am," one of the finest elements has to be the jazzy sax throughout the entire thing, courtesy of Phelan Parker. It's a fairly unusual tune for The Wiley Ones even employing a great piano line; I hope this is only a preview of what is to come from their approaching album. You can catch them on Super Bowl Sunday; they will be playing the NFL Tailgate Party at University of Phoenix Stadium.
