Welcome back, Mike! I knew that snake bite wouldn’t hold you down!
Mike Posner has been a pretty interesting musician these last couple of years. Not only has he changed his appearance, but it seems like the music he’s been making as of late has been a lot more inspiring than braggadocios. In “Legacy,” the red-haired singer was able to create something as inspirational as it gets.
“Legacy” is powered by this serene instrumental that begs listeners to sit back and relax. Over this instrumental, Mike Posner sings and raps about finding a way to live life grandiose through self-determination and self-assurance. Personally, I love how soulful this song sounds, especially when it comes to the melody and harmonizing Posner delivers.
Talib Kweli is featured in “Legacy,” and as expected, he drops an amazing verse. On it, he follows in Mike Posner’s path, discussing the importance of being a role model, finding peace and establishing a legacy. As usual, Talib spits like an absolute pro on the song, gifting us with a consistent, yet complex flow and clever punchlines.
I love what Mike Posner is doing, but on the real, he looks like he smells like expired milk on the video up top.
