Devin The Dude Once Again Captures The Soul In The Mundane (Video)
From Queen Latifah to Phonte, plenty of highly-skillful MCs have successfully transitioned into singing careers. Devin The Dude is one—like Pharoahe Monch and Z-Ro—who never conceptually went there. Yet throughout his 21-plus-year-career, the Florida native has dropped those moments on albums where the raps are so secondary.
“One For The Road” is really like an outro. The former Facemob member just croons the chorus over careful instrumentation. The visual shows Houston, Texas in black-and-white. However simple it seems, is this moment not the perfect vibe-out? Whether it applies to a joint in the ear, a proper farewell embrace, or long-distance love, or a bid apart, The Dude does it again.
