26 year old Leon Bridges has exploded into the soul / gospel world this year with his breakout debut album Coming Home gaining huge support. Now his critically acclaimed album has been brought back to his Texas roots with a new mixtape by Brooklyn based producer MICK titled “Coming Home To Texas,” in which the album is reworked to infuse the sound of the original album with dirty south rap.
This new project brings on verses from Texas hip hop heavyweights Bun B and Slim Thug as well as some signature samples thrown in from UGK and Geto Boys. The chopped & screwed hip hop vibe fits surprisingly well with Leon’s smooth vocals as MICK explained “Leon Bridges is an underground king who made a classic album with a timeless sound. I wondered what would happen if I remix that with timeless classics from his home state of Texas? This is the result.” Grab the free download and enjoy!
