Obie Iyoha – Midnight Run

This Friday TBO’s Obie Iyoha released Midnight Run and I’m glad I made time to check it out. The titular track is my favorite amongst stiff competition from Assassins, Voodoo & Lights On. I have a personal history with Gaye’s Flyin’ High (In The Friendly Sky) so that plays a part in my selection but the way Obie ties that with Detroit’s drug epidemic and other social ills is both timely and poignant. I recently watched a special about heroin’s damaging effect on the economically depressed areas while DMT is embraced among the hipster crowd in the gentrified ones and this track adds additional perspective.
