Brixton’s George in the Clouds talks personal conflict in ‘Homesick’

In Hip Hop by Nick Russell

This one from Brixton artist George in the Clouds felt really original in terms of flow pattern and delivery, while the concept and lyrical content, centred around London felt authentic. This song deals with the feeling of personal conflict living in a new environment starkly different to the one in which he was raised. Accompanied by smooth vocal samples, suspenseful pads and warm 808s; this song is a journey on coming to terms with his surroundings and navigating life’s challenges in his favour.
