Why do we like this?

Here's some new captivating rap from New York-based artist/DJ MeLo-X, aka Mustafa,courtesy of Majestic Casual.

If you didn't already know,Mustafa's somewhat of a regular in the NYC scene,making music with the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Mickey Factzback in 2010before they hit it "big." A self-described "sonic creator", he develops dope beats with a flow that sounds somewhat like Jesse Boykins III, Wale, or AZEKEL. There's no doubt as to why he was named one ofBBC 1Xtra's "10 Artists to Watch for 2010."

Originally this track was a remix of Gotye's "Somebody I Used To Know," now flipped into a smooth electronicsoul serenade. According to the SoundCloud description,it tells the story of "an encounter with a woman who moves like she's from another planet." Fans of The Weeknd will appreciate the accompanying music video by fashion photographerPaul Jung. Apparently it's an homage to Jean-Luc Godard, blending MeLo-X's hip-hop with Jean's nouvelle vague look. Much more stylish than Kanye.Don't miss it here.

For more MeLo-X, hithis website. If you dig this track, check out Sweet Bitch, in which Mustafa rhymes over Jesse Futerman's Lonesome Lover. Quality stuff.
