Producer Nottz and rapper Asher Roth take a casual stroll together down memory lane on the latest single “Dontcha Wanna Be (My Neighbor)” from Nottz’s forthcoming debut solo album You Need This Music to be released October 26th on Raw Koncept Media Group.
From the get-go, shimmering xylophone samples recall nostalgic flashbacks, signaling the eternal backward glance into breezy summer days and hanging out around the block. Far from simply telling their stories, Nottz and Roth invite us to join in their respective journeys with the hook, crooned by Colin Munroe, “Welcome to the world that I’m from/ Maybe you’ll wanna be/ My neighbor/ They say that where you goin’ ain’t always where you from/ Maybe some day you’ll be /My neighbor.”
Fans can also expect a video for the single in the near future. Nottz and Roth are currently collaborating on the upcoming The Rawth EP. Hit the jump for audio…
