Throwback Track: Citizen Kane - "Blackrain"

Citizen Kane is a super slept on group from Toronto, Canada that released their debut album Deliverance back in 1999. Though their album won acclaim in Canada and had some video time on Rap City in the 90's, it was the 1996 B-side to the Structure/Foundation single, called "Black Rain", that stuck out to me for all these years. The Bill Withers sample flip and lyrical skills that shine on the single made it almost hypnotic to me and I still rock it in my iPod daily during long train rides. I wish their was an official video for this track, but this post from Youtube of the 12" cover will suffice.
