When an artist drops a debut album, it's almost like the beginning stages of a relationship. You might see a few promising details in it but you just don't see yourself creating a relationship with that artist's music in the future. Maybe it takes time and you have to give it a few listens until you develop feelings. Or maybe you listen to it from start to finish, quickly put your guard down and hope it isn't a "one and done" type deal. Well, fingers crossed Innanet James is a long-term relationship type of artist.

Maryland-bred hip-hop artist, Innanet James, grew up surrounded by music. His father, a musician of his own kind, played conga in local go-go bands and while James was growing up, Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, and Wu-Tang Clan would be played throughout the house. But it wasn't until a brief encounter in high school with rapper GoldLink that the door to creating music opened for James. GoldLink and James grew apart shortly after and James tried to leave music in the past, go to school and get a job. But thanks to nagging buddies and an undeniable love for music, Innanet James has just released his debut, 10-track mixtape, Quebec Place featuring the feel-good, energetic track "Girls."

Not only will Quebec Place keep the summer going for you post-Labor Day, but you could listen to "Girls" all the way till next summer. A brief ten second introduction of hotel elevator music quickly drops into a beat-heavy banger dedicated to all the girls in James' life. At only 21-years-old, Innanet James has a lyrical delivery that is clear and confident with infectious energy and he lays it out on top of jazz-infused, bouncy production showing us he has no plans of slowing down. With a catchy hook like, "This is for the girls I meet around the world. For the girls I love around the world" I'd say - this ones for you, girls.
