Seafood Sam has dropped his brand new single ‘’86 Carolina West’.

Reminiscent of 80s groove, bouncing low-riders and warm-tinted shades, the track is a celebratory moment for the Long Beach California rapper. Sporting vibrant, glossy visuals, ‘’86 Carolina West’ pinpoints Seafood Sam’s evolution as an artist, cruising through a nostalgic production with slick, witty rhymes.

The track arrives alongside the announcement of his forthcoming EP ‘Afros In The Wind’, set to release on Friday 20th October via tight-knit label drink sum watr. Delving into his experiences of fatherhood, freedom and family, the project also spotlights the voices of those in All Flowers Group and Secretly family. Indeed, it’s an exciting venture that hints towards a new direction for hip-hop & rap, leaning into a more funk-tinged, upbeat aesthetic.

Speaking on the track, Seafood Sam expands: ‘Afros In The Wind’ is simple – it’s about Black Freedom. Being free. When people use the phrase ‘let your hair down’, they don’t get it. ’Fros don’t come down. They catch wind. You hear the title and you see the image”
