He has stood in the background for his first few releases, but it now seems like Mayer Hawthorne is ready to breakthrough. With developed writing talent and a voice dedicated to the old school, Hawthorne has a very unique style. Now with him linking up with Kendrick Lamar for today’s Song of the Day, a whole new group is going to be turned on to Hawthorne’s talent.
Combining his old school influence with a new school beat, Hawthorne’s latest leak “Crime” from the upcoming album Where Does This Door Go has true hit potential. Joining Hawthorne on his “Crime” party is Kendrick Lamar who continues his guest verst trail. K. Dot fits perfectly next to Mayer, by no means outshining Hawthorne who will reap the benefits from this collaboration.
Listen to “Crime” below.
