Another week, another new joint from Spenzo. Spenz reunited L.E.P. for “Dripping In Gold” last week and this week, he effortlessly kills a jazzy soundscape from DJ L alongside King Louie. No, really — Spenzo and Louie both bring their A-game here.

Another win for Spenz. Give “Effortlessly” a listen or three below and look for both Spenzo’s Ahead Of My Time project and Louie’s Drilluminati 3 project to impact later this year.

“Rihanna’s seriously pleased to have bagged a big slot at The Grammys and two huge names to kick off her comeback.”

So yeah, it looks as if its Yeezy, Ri Ri and Paul season. Hopefully this isn’t just a rumor, but I foresee it happening. This record has Grammy written all over it and I’m sure we won’t be able to escape it a few moths from now.
