Jhené Aiko is an arty R&B singer who’s been on diffuse, expansive songs with people like Drake and Kendrick Lamar, and she fits remarkably well with the introspective, word-drunk West Coast rap thing that’s happening right now. Aiko is about to release her new EP Sail Out, and her “Stay Ready (What A Life)” is a hushed, intimate, sprawling six-minute song with a Kendrick Lamar appearance. Listen to it below.
