As soon you see the name Cody Chesnutt, you know the music is going to have soul and live instrumentation far beyond sampled and looped beats. But as a new listener, you will be caught off guard by his rousing lyrics and funky melodies.
On “Under the Spell of the Handout,” The R&B crooner elegantly wraps a piece of 99% revaluation penning, “I adore the gold and cash/I go for treason if that will increase my pay/Because I’m under/I’m under the spell of the handout/Oh I’m hungry for a freedom if that will/Gimme gimme gimme and I’m gone.”
Mr. Chesnutt plans to drop “Under the Spell of the Handout” on his second full length album entitled ‘Landing On A Hundred.’
