Sage Elsesser‘s growth as rapper Navy Blue had been something bubbling beneath the surface until he delivered his debut full-length Àdá Irin in early February. The 30-minute project was a polished glimpse into Sage’s introspective creative process with minimal soul samples and emotions that lingered well-after the final track. Now he returns with another loosie in “No Foolin’ (Post Panic: Prelude)” via his SoundCloud.

The song was produced by Nicholas Craven and mixed and mastered by Zeroh (who recently debuted his experimental and genre-less voyage known as his BLQLYTE album some six years in the making). On “No Foolin’ (Post Panic: Prelude)” Navy continues to wax poetic about his search for truth and displays depth in the storytelling department. The matching backing sample echoes, “Boy, stop fooling yourself” while he repeats, “Then I grew out my hair/ I returned to my roots/ Navy wore a noose/ I was ghost in thin air/ My higher-self was in the room…”

Listen to the soulful new track below. In more music news, MIKE revisited simpler times with friends for his new “Fortune Teller” music video.
