New York composer Michael Vincent Waller (MVW) teams with producer Lex Luger and Chicago rapper Valee for “Still Do,” the second single from his upcoming Classic$ EP available via AWAL Distribution. With MVW and Lex Luger’s rich production of ominous strings and punchy beats, and Valee’s effortless vocals on wealth and luxury, the three artists come together to create a fresh new sound.
MVW explains, “My core intention on Classic$ is to get classical music into hip-hop without dissolving either. It’s about allowing the production and samples to breathe organically. We’re not simply trying to add orchestral heavy strings. Instead, we’re relying on dark and episodic chamberal moments, which fit naturally. I hope people are like, ‘I didn’t know classical music could be so funky. I can’t believe trap is so sensuous and beautiful.’”
Valee adds, “The production just spoke to me. I knew I had to do something different and use a brand new flow.”
The new song follows Classic$
lead single “Survey Says” featuring Shanique Marie that celebrates the pride and joy of unity and self-love on the vocals while co-producer Lex Luger flips Michael Vincent Waller’s original composition “Love 1” into a hypnotic and mesmerizing sample.
