Blaq Kush – ““Lengthy Island Acid Jazz”
Blaq Kush is content material to reside in his personal nook and watch the remainder of the world go by. He has a conspiratorial eye, however he balances paranoia with humor. On “Lengthy Island Acid Jazz,” a current loosie, he raps over a guitar riff that feels prefer it was left over from MF DOOM’s Born Like This classes—it’s closely distorted and it sounds prefer it was taken from a dwell present. He interjects story snippets between his cryptic traces, biking by characters like a novelist. He’ll element a second of psychiatric confusion (“Therapist tried to pay attention however by no means heard his rage”), then pivot to slice-of-life awkwardness (“Considered saying good morning, you heard a nervous ‘hey’”). As he runs by these narratives, he drops witty asides (“No one can see me/I’m Blind Fury from 106”) and statements of function (“By no means blame the music/Simply blame the market and publicists”). It’s a densely packed barrage delivered with ease.
With artists releasing songs at a quick and livid tempo, it’s tough for the common hip-hop head to maintain monitor of all of it—irrespective of how tapped in they’re. That’s why we created The Ones, a every day publish to spotlight the tune it’s essential to hear.
