On Miles Away, Black Lion is able to call back to 1990s hip-hop for a track that is part laid-back, part hard-hitting street rap. With a twinkling production that builds off of the tradition of J. Dilla, Miles Away simply slaps. The contribution of Janel Sherise to the cut’s chorus provides a further layer of finesse to the song. There’s enough variety to Miles Away that it will stay fresh through the entirety of the summer. The distinct flows of Rich and Heny make Miles Away an effort that stands up to scrutiny. Current, contemporary, and tremendously reverent of the rap that preceded them, Black Lion has made a big splash with their latest single.
