BONES & Cat Soup – ForbiddenImage
BONES connects with TeamSESH producer cat soup for his fourth full-length album of 2021. ForbiddenImage is comprised of 6 instrumentals and 7 vocal tracks, alternating between BONES’ signature flow and cat soup’s lo-fi recording techniques. The two underground artists have been working together since 2015, dropping a string of singles and two collab albums (Slán and Augmented) along the way. Their latest, ForbiddenImage, encapsulates that ominous, uncanny vibe that BONES is notoriously known for creating. It’s almost like cat soup knows how to find those hidden pockets within instrumentals that complement the Michigan-bred rapper’s idiosyncratic flow.
KingMostWanted – “Couple Questions”
KingMostWanted powers through addiction to find true love. Ahead of his Time For The Throne album, the Inland Empire rapper is making strides towards becoming the new King of Romance. With his latest video single, “Couple Questions,” King openly admits to being love-struck by prescription drugs, but he’s willing to call it quits for the right woman. Thematically, this track represents the addictive nature of love and that euphoric feeling that ensues. Love is a drug. And yet, it’s something that we all desire in one form or another. KingMostWanted just decided to confront his unhealthy habit with a series of questions centering around loyalty.
My Favorite Color – “Mayday”
“Mayday” isn’t just a distress signal, it’s also My Favorite Color’s new single. With his latest, MFC delivers a medley of punchlines that flex his distinct style. Sonically, he attacks the beat with no remorse, pivoting from braggadocious mentions to “fuck you” mantras. My Favorite Color’s quirky personality shines throughout his music. He’s funny as hell but strangely blunt in most cases, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world catches on.
