Mailbox: grey prince – Charity

Blessing the world with the new vision like it was charity

Very-hard-to-categorize hiphop from San Francisco-based Iranian-American artist grey prince, real name Jubin Pakdel. I’ll admit I can’t subscribe to all of the lyrics in this, but it’s undeniably fascinating stuff. Equally referencing Memphis phonk and experimental club à la HVAD (those incessant rolling kicks!), all within the context of… something else. I’m at a bit of a loss with this one, but I can’t quite stop listening. There’s a lot to unpack here; it sort of feels like it must have been made in one fit of flow state inspiration.

Out now for streaming, no bandcamp.
