With so much controversy in the world right now, a consistent voice with an empowering message should be welcomed with open arms. Hailing from Chicago, Jamila Woods is unapologetic in her flaws. She embraces her feelings and speaks her thoughts with no alternative motive. The result of her all-encompassing thoughts and feelings is “Heavn,” a 13-track project bringing together some of Chicago’s finest from Chance The Rapper to Kweku Collins, Saba, Noname, Donnie Trumpet, Peter Cottontail and more.
Woods shows her introverted side on “Lonely Lonely,” crooning over a soft drum kick and floating production she opens up about being okay with ‘her crazy.’ She is confident on “VRY BLK” and “Blk Girl Soldier,” embracing her experiences and asking pertinent questions as to what is going on in the country. She shows love for Chicago on “LSD,” short for Lake Shore Drive as her and Chance The Rapper come together.
