It’s been awhile since we’ve heard any new music from Cody ChesnuTT, the guitarist that took the underground music scene by storm with his lo-fi, bedroom recordings in the early 2000s.

German producer Suff Daddy and Kansas City-based MC/singer/producer Miles Bonny teamed up for this track from Suff Daddy’s forthcoming album, The Gin Diaries.

From her days singing back-up for Erykah Badu to her current work with Phonte & Nicolay’s The Foreign Exchange project, Yahzarah’s been waiting for her turn to stand out front.
