Ahead of his album release, TDE’s very own SiR came through with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk to talk about the project, his TDE family and more.
One of the tracks he dropped before the album included a feature from Kendrick Lamar titled “Hair Down.” The Inglewood singer shared it was very special that he got a verse from Kung Foo Kenny. Later in the interview Sourmilk asks SiR what has been the most humbling experience being in the TDE studio which he states was when he got the Kendrick verse. He notes that the song was a year old but always had getting Kendrick on it in the back of his mind.
When speaking on artists that inspire him he mentions that he grew up in the church so Fred Hammond as well as his family who were also involved in music. He goes on to add Jay-Z, Kanye West and Common were artists that influenced him and that Be is one of the best projects Common ever created. On the topic of the best of the best, Justin Credible asks SiR if he could put together a super group of three male R&B artists who would it be. The “D’Evils” singer named Frank Ocean, himself and James Fauntleroy, as James was an artist that lead as an example for him especially being from the West Coast.
Inglewood SiR’s new album Chasing Summer includes 14 tracks with features from a few major names in the game. The “Hair Down” singer shares that he was very excited about getting a verse from Lil Wayne, as well as a feature from Jill Scott. He talks about how much love and respect he has for Jill and how creative she is but feels that she hasn’t got the respect that she deserves.
