Originally from Texas and now located in Chi-town, A.N.I is an up-and-coming artist with a whole lot of soul. His humble beginnings consist of dorm room mixtapes, and now that his music is starting to take off, he revisits how it all started with a new project titled Channel OnePointFive. The intro track, “Live to See”, is a poignant piece about dreaming big.
This song excels in both production and powerful storytelling. The backtrack is a vibey and jazzy instrumental with some vocal layering thrown over it, culminating in a boom bap-type beat. A.N.I raps about having hopes for the future but having the awareness that he may never make it to that point. He also has 9toFyve on the track providing some smooth falsetto in the chorus, sealing the deal, and certifying this as a serious jam.
You can stream the song below. Enjoy!
