Teedra Moses – Luxurious Undergrind [Download]
Teedra Moses – “Another Luvr”
Fans of Teedra Moses know that her first album is an underrated classic, so maybe that is what this mixtape title aludes to? Who knows, but all I know is that I still listen to Complex Simplicity, and now, if you’ve been keeping up, Teedra has been signed to Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group. Yep.
This is the first full offering of any kind from Ms. Moses since her signing I believe, and I’m only a couple of tracks in but I’m not disappointed. Teedra’s voice is a cool, calm, and collected stylistic affair that is neither a belt nor howl, but she stays in her lane and it always usually yields pleasant results. With the added power of Maybach’s dollars and a new deal, I’m sure she’s even more emboldened to hit the scene in her own way.
From the first track however, Teedra sets a tone that definitely has a luxurious feel. The undergrind could mean that this music comes easily to her, but she’s still grinding to get to where she should be? In any case, enjoy the free music. I don’t think you will be upset that you gave up the space on your hard drive. Her voice is light and at times, seems a bit weird tonally, but it’s always been that way and her off-kilter voice has always been a favorite of mine. It’s also pretty well sequenced for a smooth listen throughout. Checkout one of my favorites above, “Another Luvr”.
