Joining the dots
Tah Phrum The Bush told me to support my local emcees last week. Kind of. The Brooklyn emcee I was introduced to over a year ago on a trip to NYC, just happened to mention it to the audience when he was hosting A to the ZeMCee at Contact Theatre last Thursday. Which was a lot of fun, by the way.
I do you know. I really do. I love Broke’n’English, R.I.O and Virus Syndicate among others. I’m ashamed to say though, Skittles nearly passed me by. I can’t say how thankful I am for Tah’s reminder because in the midst of all the music-based tweets, status updates and e-mails I end up getting embroiled in every evening, I may have just missed out.
I like that the promo for his new single Dot2Dot doesn’t take anything away from the track. I like that the lullaby melody and Skittles’ glittery face mask… thing, freaks me out. I like that his menacing tone scares me. I like that he’s unapologetic about drinking Lambrini. I love that the track is just under three minutes. I love his hypnotic flow. I just love it.
And I support my local emcees. Watch out for Skittles’ forthcoming album, ‘Poor With £100 trainers’ and check out his Facebook page.
