(This post was inspired by a comment on my most recent posts about hip hop’s latest dance joints. Peace to you bruh…)
Let me offer a few points about this joint that make it superb. First, they lyrics, melody, and emotion of the song work in harmony to convey a very psychotic message, and I’m sure that is by design. Now some might be put off by a song like this, but I want to remind you that the world of heavy metal music is full of faaaaaaarrrrrrrrrr more disturbing images and lyrics, and this content is not new to hip hop either. Has anyone listened to Brotha Lynch or some of DMX’s stuff? How do we define “disturbed?” Yikes.
Anyhow, it’s one thing to rap about killing someone. Hell, even I could do that–and probably better than say Prodigy or Kool G Rap (yeah I said it!). It’s a totally different thing altogether to paint a picture that may actually frighten you. This song and video are like watching “Clockwork Orange” or “Hostel” or something, and that’s what makes it dope!
Now I can’t relate to the lyrics, but I have to give it up to this man for being able to skillfully paint that picture. Whatever he’s been on, I want NONE!
