Luc Toews – Good Feeling (Prod. Pretty Lights) [Audio]
Burlington, ON – Originally published December 1, 2014 – Burlington MC-producer Luc Toews just got in touch about a week ago to let us know that he’d dropped his latest single, “Good Feeling,” to help promote his upcoming Pipe Dream EP (due out in early 2015).
This song is Luc’s love song of life. He uses the track to convey his dedicated love to the rap game, as well as his hunger for progression. It seems like a pretty good feeling to have.
The joint features some slick Pretty Lights production. The beat may sound kind of familiar to you. It samples “Levels” by Avicii. It’s the same sample that was used in “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida. Except on this beat, Pretty Lights mellowed things out and turned the sample into an easy-listening chill-out viber. Check out the track below.
Lyrically, this joint is top notch. Luc gives several nods to some of his personal rap great favourites. First he compares himself to J. Cole: “I’m a lion dude/ Young Simba / Like Cole.” Then he compares himself to Drizzy Drake: “Tripping in the 6/ They say I’m sounding like Drake more”.”
Also. For the record: he starts off the following verse with “On my worst behaviour, thank me later”; which refers to one of Drake’s most monstrous songs (“Worst Behaviour”) followed by one of Drake’s most monstrous projects (Thank Me Later). This line gets me giddy.
It’s dope to see an MC having so much fun with his lyrics on a song he penned about the good feelings he gets from the rap game. Luc winds it all down by throwing a Star Trek reference at us, because he’s Luc Toews and he’ll do what he wants: “It’s time to build the enterprise/ Someone beam me up.”
