Bronx rhymer and ReeLife associate Doley Bernays has shared a brand new single from his forthcoming Just in Case EP and it's, well, romantic. "Tommy & Keish" takes its name from the iconic couple at the center of Hype Williams' 1998 film Belly, who happened to be played by DMX and Teddy Riley-affiliated singer Taral Hicks. While the lyrics aren't exactly the mushy stuff of Valentine's specials, they certainly pay tribute to an enduring sort of love: "I said damn I love that crazy shit, just me and my crazy bitch / Same girl I got broke with, be the same girl I get famous with / We fighting every day but we fucking every night / She say how much she hate me but she love me in her life."

Bernays' go-to beatsmith MP Williams returns (via "Blessed" and "Till We Fall"), here providing a goopy synth-heavy production assisted by soulful ahhs by James ASHLI.
