RedEye is proud to debut "Secret EP: The Mixtape," the new release from Rock 'n' Vote 2014 finalist SoloSam. On the 13-song project, the 21-year-old Valparaiso University junior and River North resident (born Samuel Akainyah) delivers more of what Matt Pais called "Laid-back hip-hop that delivers conversational, playful lyricism over an accessible, jazzy musical landscape."
