Listen to Taylor Bennett’s new project ‘Restoration of an American Idol’

Taylor’s highly anticipated new album, Restoration of an American Idol, is finally here. Taylor’s had an impressive past year, having toured with Tory Lanez and sold out venues across the country on the solo tip — not to mention dropped a short film. Today, however, he returns with Restoration of an American Idol, a nine song outing featuring an all-star cast. Big Bro Chano shows up, as does Jeremih, Lil Yachty, Supa Bwe and Raury. Mike Will, too. Yeah, it’s super serious.

Nicholaus Kane channels Percy Miller on “Ice Cream Man”

Produced by Atom Grey

Nick Kane is playing to my weaknesses on this one here. On “Ice Cream Man” he resurrects Percy Miller’s 1996 classic album and song, Mr. Ice Cream Man.
