Raury talks encounters with SBTRKT & Kanye

In a new sit-down with MTV, Raury talks about his first big-name collab on the way with SBTRKT and how this was his first lengthy sit-down with an artist who’s out here like that. After getting to know each other more, Raury revealed they worked on some new music and he’ll have a couple of tracks on the upcoming SBTRKT project.

Additionally, Raury turned heads earlier this summer with a big co-sign from Kanye West. It came in the form of a simple photo, that Kanye liked “God’s Whisper”, and that they played each other music. Raury elaborates a little more in the video/transcript below:

[Kanye and SBTRKT] were equally humble people. Kanye was very cool, man. We had breakfast, we talked for a nice little minute and then we played each other each others’ tracks. I played him stuff from the album before the release, and he went nuts and played me his stuff. I was like, “Oh my god”… I always feel like I have to keep up with people like that. He’s got some really good stuff coming, that’s all I can say, but yeah he’s real cool.
