There was a good 4-5 years last decade or so when every hot song sounded like this. I call it the “Chet Faker” sound, but there’s probably a more apt name for it. Broody, emotional, vocal driven jams made to be played for intimate crowds in the most niche joints in the city.
I’m not going to pretend to understand Curren$y’s release schedule. This song “dropped” a week or two ago on his latest release, but also has a music from from 2001. Whatever it is, hip hop’s hardest worker is just my fave. Yea his songs have a formula. Yea he has one sound. But he’s like the Sublime of rap. Put on anything and just chill. It’ll be good. (plus that beat is totally stuck in my head)
Ok it’s not often I post a YouTube clib. I also don’t think I’ve ever posted a freestyle. But HOLY hell is this fucking smooth. Yes, J.Cole has a new album out but this is 1000x better than the rest of the album IMO. The first first freestyle in the video is what I’ve been jamming too (the beat over 93 ’til infinity). I’m not really into the second half. But wowza. That first freestyle is absolutely unreal.
