For those who like innovative hip hop, there’s much to savour in recent years. Guys and gals like Open Mike Eagle, Little Simz, Tyler, the Creator, Homeboy Sandman, amongst many others, have shown that there is unforseen growth in an art form that sometimes tends to turn inwards from its obsession with its own clichés.
But if you still try to make fresh in-your-face boom bap, then let these guys be your idols. Supastition especially impresses here with a pristine verse, as he wastes no words and poignantly paints his philosophy. The track is included on Jake Kost’s new album with the interesting German title Stadluft Macht Frei.
