Fresh off a birthday celebration that included a key to D.C. and a holiday in his honor, DMV crooner Raheem DeVaughn has returned with the second installment of his Jackin for Beats mixtape series, in which the singer lays vocals atop Lil’ Wayne‘s popular “6 Foot 7 Foot” single and reinvents Guy‘s notable ’80s slow jam, “Let’s Chill.”
On the Prince-influenced “Love Faces,” Raheem’s up to his usual tricks, detailing the intricacies of a booty call over a slow, piano-laced melody. Then on the funky “Candy Girl,” the vocalist picks up the pace, lending his high-pitched falsetto to a midtempo, guitar-heavy groove.
Jackin for Beats Vol. 2 is DeVaughn’s 12th mixtape release. On the first Jackin 4 Beats mixtape—-released in November—-DeVaughn remixed Kanye West‘s “Runaway,” “Power,” and Wacka Flocka Flame‘s “No Hands,” among several other tracks. Go here to download DeVaughn’s new mixtape and look out for his fourth studio album, A Place Called Loveland, dropping later this year.
