Hip-Hop Tribute to Arizona Actually Mentions Tucson

Posted By on Fri, May 11, 2012 at 1:00 PM

I don't think I would have ever anticipated hearing a rap instrumental sampling a Simply Red track, but Mouse Powell's sentimental tribute to Arizona, "Holding Home," manages to pull it off. While the track largely focuses on the Phoenix area (Powell lives in Tempe, so that makes sense), but there is a mention of roadtrips to Tucson and the video includes footage from a pool party at Casino del Sol, so at least that's something. I don't know if a Phoenix-centric song would go over too well on a mixtape down here, but Mouse's style really does lend itself to summertime and poolside boomboxes.

Powell's latest album, Where It's Cloudy, is available on Bandcamp.
