As a Big K.R.I.T. stan, I first came across Mara Hruby on his Instagram page, seeing photos of the two totally enwrapped in their undeniable chemistry and romance, it was her nostalgic, classic beauty that drew me in. Then… when I found out she was an artist, with soul filled vocals my mind was blown. Now, Mara Hruby has returned with a video treatment behind a track off of her 2014 project Archaic Rapture, a compilation and homage dedicated to a tainted love, lost.
Mara drowns her sorrows with liquor, as her angelic voice soothes then instantly pierces with dreary lyrics. Honestly the track already makes me emotional, the video just adds on to the feels. Check out the visuals behind In The Wee Small Hours and get familiar with the Mara Hruby.

Revamping the original track, Makonnen has added on a few new prospects to add more fuel to his Sound Like Who single. Makonnen has enlisted the chorus king Lil Yachty and newbie Larry League to increase the levels of turn up on the joint, all while sending a message to any posers trying to jock their sound.
Although I hate to admit, this is more than likely bound to be bumping out of my car speakers at least once. Stream Sound Like Who here:
