It’s been awhile since new DaVinci popped up around here, but this newest track serves to pump confidence into belief “patience is a virtue.” Backed by eerie production from The Goon known as Josh, DaVinci sits in the driver seat for trip that takes anything but the scenic route. Vinci’s ominous tale of street workings for profit and survival is so vivid, in fact, “Long Way From Home” sounds like a lost recording from your favorite mobster flick’s soundtrack. The number represents a beautiful union of production and storytelling resulting in an offering with more replay value than it does violence.
Ironically, don’t expect for this to appear on The Fillmore District MC’s new project, The MOEna Lisa. If there’s better records in the stash than this, Vinci’s obviously sitting on an unreleased Mac Dre verse.
