Ceezlin’s The Way You Love Me is our latest Hip Hop Find.
Brighton-based rapper Ceezlin’s 2011 track is as low-key as they come, but leaves a lasting impression thanks to emotive, relatable lyrics over a sleazy interpretation of Al Green’s soul classic Simply Beautiful. Ceezlin’s lovelorn ode to a wayward girlfriend are heard through the haze of a sleepy beat courtesy of fellow Brighton MC Scizzahz, both part of the thriving Don’t Flop battle scene. The sampling is uncomplicated but effective, giving Green’s incredible voice room to breathe. One of the most impressive UK hip-hop tracks of recent years.
