James Gardin teams up with Japanese producer Toshiki Hayashi(%C) for an uplifting jam titled “Soul Rich.” As the title suggests, the track explores the intrinsic elements of life while imploring the listeners to focus on within and do away with the unnecessary in these crazy times.
James’ melodic musings are more than a perfect fit for Toshiki’s crunchy groove. James’ makes it clear that lives get touched and haters get hushed with a smooth and confident flow which he’s perfected over the years. He definitely is in his element over the pensively funky guitar snaps which would get the gun finger salute at any Hip Hop show. There is nothing like that intangible peace from knowing your value doesn’t come from material wealth. Stack your paper if you must, but when your soul rich, it’s all good even when it ain’t all good.
