Premiere: Say Happy Mother’s Day with Golden’s “Mornin’ Momma”
Just realized you forgot a gift for Mother’s Day? No worries—we’re premiering the perfect little musical present, courtesy of Golden, that’ll surely melt your momma’s heart.
On “Mornin’ Momma,” the latest offering from the genre-fusing Chicago group, frontman Mike Golden (of Mike Golden and Friends), unspools a heartfelt note to his matriarch over a foot-tapping groove that calls upon elements of soul, rock, and rap. With lines like “The more I’m hurtin’, the more I grow,” Golden has to hand it to his moms: even when he’s blind to her wisdom, she always knows best.
Golden fits in nicely with one of Chicago’s most relevant rising hip-hop cliques; in the past, he’s hopped on tracks with Vic Mensa and Donnie Trumpet, and he’s even rumored to be blessing Chance the Rapper & the Social Experiment’s forthcoming record, SURF, with a verse.
