The Fantastic 4 (Black Thought)
Dostoevsky Ft. Rapsody – Black Thought The beauty of this track is that it literally sounds like a freestyle! Infact the entire EP project sounds like a freestyle, as if he didn’t write down anything and he just let things come out. It is a masterpiece of a track weighing in on the ghostwriting that is currently at the forefront of discussions with the line “written without a ghost writer”, this suggests that rappers almost have to disclaim their loyalty to the art-form now that it has a massive pop style to the genre. The lyrical bombs in this track alone is to die like wise in the project as if the name “Streams Of Thought” did not suggest that it will be all about the lyrics considering stream suggests a continuous flow of a particular idea or thing whilst thought literally is his name as well as thoughts that can be expressed in freestyle mode. GENIUS! You may want to lookup Dostoevsky to understand the track further also! Streams Of Thought Vol.1
The Fantastic 4 (Vic Mensa)
This song is definitely a hit for the clubs. A banger of a track that describes his pleasures as well as an insight personal life and his political motivations. In all honesty, I like Vic Mensa, I do feel he is purposefully desensitizing his music, he has a lot more to him as he is quite smart, the use of metaphors and references shows he is already ahead of most rappers in the game today, pay attention to the lyrics that he used constructs this song. Note: The official video is not out yet!
The Fantastic 4 (Jelani Blackman)
“Innovative” is the only word I have to describe Jelani Blackman, the West Londoner has been active in the rap scene after his release of “Twenty//Three” but took a two year hiatus after 2014, he returned in 2016 with a very insightful “Follow” and with the release of “Go Low” he continues to show us what he is capable of. What he hasnt revealed much is his private but makes up for it in his music.
Fantastic 4 (Little Simz)
This choice for feature was my sheer love for her music and her ability to create hits and when I listen to an album, I tend to look and dig for those album cuts, those hidden gems in an album and this track was no exception. Taken from her “Stillness In Wonderland” album which is a marathon of an album with 23 tracks but its worth the listen. Especially if you love Hip Hop. Her swagger on a track is unjackable neither is her message unrefined. The care she takes in her subtle delivery encapsulates why I love to follow her work and why I love this track.
