Instantly when you hear "New Thing" from the El Paso native Raphael Leraux. It gives you such a 90's feel, from the sound to the overall concept of the single. Very dope production, and strong wordplay. It took me personally to days of my box body Chevy's and a set of 20 inch Dayton's (Rims). Love music Like "New Thing" that can still pull presence like such, to take you back to when music was GREAT. We are excited to hear more from Raphael in the near future, but don't take my word for check it out, take a listen for yourself and tell us what you think.
