“Leaf Wraps” serves as my introduction to Louisville, KY-based The Homies and I’m certainly pleased to make their musical acquaintance. Stepping up with a uniquely eccentric energy and personality all their own, the collective – which runs five deep (2forwOyNE, Quiiso, Shloob, Ronnie Lucciano and Ace Pro) – covers all bases, handling their production and engineering in-house while also lacing those self-produced bops with smoothly delivered, sharp-witted wordplay.
With an assist from their Private Garden compadre, Jack Harlow, “Leaf Wraps” is a vibe-heavy, wavy and fun record that does a fine job showcasing the eclectic mix of style and energy The Homies bring to the table. It’s quite evident from the Brian Campbell-directed visual they’re all having fun together, showcased throughout the balanced shots of parties, yoga and simply wylin’ out. And everything about “Leaf Wraps”, from the music to the video, feels completely natural – The Homies are a group of homies, having the time of their life cooking up content chalk full of good energy.
“Leaf Wraps” is available now on all major streaming platforms.
