Late Forecast: Howie Stackz - "Hurricane Season"
Our sincerest apologies for missing Hurricane Season in the Chi. Please continue to read for full coverage below:
Back in late February, Chicago wordsmith Howie Stackz dropped his latest EP, Hurricane Season. The project is intense and heartfelt from start to finish. Fueled by the loss of loved ones, reminiscent times in Florida, and overall life changes, this EP was rightfully named. It has a Midwest sound with a Florida feel, very similar to Stackz himself who was born in Illinois, brought up in Florida, then later moved back to Illinois where he currently resides.
Opening up Hurricane Season is a track by the same name, a walk through some of the struggles and distractions brought on by life these days. Florida gets a few shout outs on this project starting with track 2, Brevard County Blues. In this track, Howie speaks on his homesickness after leaving the city he was raised in. Immediately after comes my personal favorite track on the EP, Outta Love, his take on Florida rapper Plies' 2014 hit Did It Outta Love. The tape ends with a beautiful track written to his mother who passed away in 2005 (RIP) entitled 2005 'Til Infinity.
Hurricane Season is a solid project from Howie Stackz who takes a few steps away from his usual sound this time around. No complaints on this side. Hear Outta Love below and make sure to check out the full project HERE.
