I know I’ve said this for basically every track featured from Young & Sick’s Brother, but gosh darn these tracks are brilliant. Dude is a musical genius. I’m already looking forward to whatever follow up albums he has in store for us in the future. Also need to see him live ASAP.
WOWZA. Started off with some major Lana Del Rey vibes, but she really starts developing her own thing after that opening few bars. What really gets me is the chorus and the pounding keyboard. I’ve had it on repeat for 19 straight days since I fear heard it. Track of the year candidate.
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)
