Check out this really amazing hip hop track from Hendrix Harris. Something that strikes me on this one is the dissonance between the chill beat and chorus and the intensity and speed of the flow of the verses. The first time I heard it, when the verse kicked in, it blew me away.
If you are like me, and like to check out lyrics, but it’s somewhat difficult to catch the first time through this song, you can find them on Genius here. Once you do, you’ll see just how much variance he fits into one song. Some of my favorites:
“Only things I take are weed, lean, fix your education
Premonitions over reminiscence, show your dedication
I would never tell somebody how to live his own life”
I think that last line in particularly is one of the main messages of this song. You do you, I’m going to do me, and don’t yuck my yum. One more section I really liked:
“Fuck your profit, even in my coffin Imma stand above it
Lead or puppet ? Imma send a rocket to the men who’ve stocked it
H.E.N.D.R.I.X fuck you, fuck the system, fuck the I.R.S”
I think we can all get behind this. No amount of money should be worth selling out or becoming a puppet. It kind of reminds of J. Cole’s new track “Brackets” in that sense. Anyway, really cool song overall and excited to see where else Hendrix Harris and his producing duo with G E N I U S go.
