“Gonna Make It” F. Freeway

    It’s a Flint, Mich.-Philadelphia, Pa. connection here on Jon Connor’s latest cut off Season 2. “Gonna Make It” features a sharp opening verse from Philly’s Freeway, who sounds absolutely great over Optiks’ head-noddin’, bluesy production. It almost sounds like it could have fit in on Freeway’s joint album with Jake One, The Stimulus Package. But it’s just another killer track from Connor, one of the past year’s most pleasant surprises in terms of pure unadulterated rapper skills. You can stream the track below. Season 2 drops Dec. 12.
