"Strangers" is one of the standout cuts from one of my favorite summer mixtapes — Jean Baptiste by The Boy Illinois. From beginning to end, Illi showcases his versatile style bouncing from topic to topic over an overall dark, and sophisticated sound. "Strangers" is a great example of this as Illi tells the story of a playa in a fresh and unique way with singer Drey Skonie providing one of the smoothest hooks of recent memory. For the visuals, the clean quality of the song is matched with clean cuts of Illi's pretty lady and the two of them performing their parts as well. Dope song, dope video — as simple as that.
