Suave Featured on

When is the last time you saw an underground artist from New Orleans featured on the same blog site as Quincy Jones, Mary J. Blige, and Erykah Badu? If you're a reader of (which you should be), then that day would be today.

Suave and his newest project, The Hip Hop Soul Revival, earned a stellar review on Kevin Nottingham's Soulful Sundays post in which contributor Justin Ivey writes:

The newest project from New Orleans artist, Suave reconnects us with the spirit of soul music. His thought-provoking lyrics and subtle baritone harmonies take us on a ride through the thoughts of a young black man striving to better himself and the world. [...] Suave’s album addresses hate and promotes love. So creatively and masterfully relevant for those new to hip hop soul and those who already cherish the genre.
