On Wiki: “Rise Of The 90s, Baby!”
This kid Wiki, who just signed to XL Recordings (Tyler, The Creator, The xx, Jai Paul, Adele), is incredible and reminds me a lot of the German rap group Huss und Hodn, who rock a similar “90s New York Golden Rap Era” aesthetic. In my eyes this is what rap should sound like. Sick flows over jazzy oldschool beats, combined with lyrics that go beyond money and hoes. If you need a comparison, take Eminem’s early output and mix it with some Yelawolf. I think this is far superior to Tyler, Earl, Asap and Azealia, he is in a league of his own. Once his EP “1993” officially drops, he is going to be huge and have a lot of imitators, it’s practically unavoidable. I suspect the EP release for early 2013 and then hopefully an LP around Autumn 2013. I really hope this whole 90s rap thing is going to come back again. It’s about time.
