Chicago native and up and coming rapper, Alex Wiley was a definite bright spot in 2014. His last project Village Party, released in June, was mostly well received, and even landed on XXL’s Best Mixtapes of 2014. After dropping his song “Ready”, he issued himself a challenge to make and release something new in 30 days, and announced the project on his twitter without much recorded.
He’s back with his latest offering, a new EP titled One Singular Flame Emoji. I knew it was only a matter time before a rapper used the word “emoji” in a song title, or project. Alex Wiley’s latest 9-track EP, has more than a few bangers on here, specifically “Sexual Dolphin”, “Whip”, “Right, Right”, and “Top of the Word”. The project is definitely on the lighter side, and something fun while working on a proper follow-up to Village Party.
