V4YS Album Review - Theophilus London - I Want You Mixtape

We mentionned Brooklyn-based rapper Theophilus London earlier this year following his great "This Charming Mixtape" and his showcase at Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards (review here).
The man recently released another mixtape, called "I Want You" that you can stream or download for free here.
In the same spirit as the first one, this mixtape also goes in a wide range of directions, mixing pop, electro or soul musical backgrounds with his really distinctive lyrics flows.
The result is uneven but there are a few gems inside like his impro on Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" or the really groovy "LightYears" sampling Roy Ayers.

Below the hot video from "I Want You" where Theophilus plays with some r&b clichés!
