It isnt uncommon for friends in the industry to collab and make some genre-crossing music. From Talib Kweli and Res (Idlewarship) to Kanye and Jay, the pairing of talented artists usually turns out to be an even better collaboration. Following suit is newcomer to the game, Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London and his long-time friend James Boykins III. The duo, titled Paris 96, make their debut with a new, smooth single “Afternoon”. The Xaphoon Jones produced seductive tune blends the intricate hip-hop/electro style of the Brooklyn emcee with the smooth, alternative vocals of Boykins over a hazy electronic groove. Fans of their previous works “Life of a Lover” and “Cold Pillow” should definitely check out this new cut and expect to hear more when their yet untitled EP drops in April.
