If you haven’t been paying attention to Queens, New York spitter Julian Stephen then you’re doing yourself a serious disservice. Julian capped off 2014 with some dope cuts like the on-max-chill “Sophisticated Thoughts” and the follow-up “Simple Minds” which found Julian rapping over Nas’ “Nas Is Like” instrumental. But on his first offering of 2015, Julian Stephen goes a little harder. “Disney Kids” has Julian going in, freestyling over a tough and atmospheric beat. “Disney Kids” is the perfect middle ground for those looking for someone to sit comfortably between the popiness of Drake and the raw, emotional intensity of J. Cole. Listen to Julian Stephen’s “Disney Kids” after the jump.
