New Music: Rome Cee – The Kraken

kraken

Got this joint sent to me from the homie Rome Cee. It’s produced by saptune and has a mellow contemplative vibe that allows Rome to paint the picture of a what’s going on in our home town from the perspective of someone that has lived in streets of Baltimore’s west side. The issues surrounding the plight of B’more are complex and you can rely on Rome to bring a subtly to the events that only someone as well rounded and thoughtful as he can do.

Check it out and leave a comment with your feelings on the track.

New track from my forthcoming EP length mixtape where I’m going in over Madlib beats. The 2nd from said project. Expect the whole thing to drop around the end of spring/beginning of summer. I start out writing these things with the intent of simply doing some wordplay and shit talking and while I do plenty of that, so far these “freestyles” have been peppered with an unintended self reflection. I keep taking stock of my personal relationship with Hip Hop. It’s kind of interesting. But it’s like I say in this particular track “I guess I use it just to ask questions/ to take out my aggression and to bask in my obsessions.”
