Raw Money Raps
by Jeremiah Jae
Released: Jul 2012
This L.A. rapper's sound is diffuse, often communicated in whispers and buried beneath vinyl record hiss. In fact, he's less of a conventional rapper than a vocalist who rhymes and sings plaintively over his beats (as well as a few contributions from Flying Lotus). It's an enigmatic performance with shades of Madlib, Gonjasufi, and Odd Future, but it yields big payoffs. There's the staccato keyboard-funk of "Money and Food," the melancholy blues loop of "Money," and the dripping-water effects of "Seasons," where he admits, "When the seasons start to change, I find I'm out of place."
