ALLEN ANTHONY: ALRIGHT
Although it's the version featuring Freeway from his 'Philadelphia Freeway' album that made the song familiar, this original rap-free version by Allen Anthony remains a largely undiscovered gem of the 2000s. It cropped up on the soundtrack of the 'Paid In Full' movie, with production from an on-point Just Blaze. Soulful vocals meet an 80s-influenced jamming beat, with reflective and empowering lyrics. This cut is truly a cruelly overlooked classic.
