“Blame Game.” Named worst song to play on Valentine’s Day for 1 year and counting. Aided by producer, Al Jieh, San Francisco’s DaVinci unfurls a tense ghetto narrative, turning Kanye’s tale of relationship woes into a bleak but inspirational message of uplift. Most importantly, he raps like he’s seen enough pain to write a Scarface song. It’s all in the details.. “See dope fiend Archie/leaning over on a parch bench/nodding off of H/got my motherfucking heart drenched.”
And whether it’s “Druqks” or songs about the debilitating effects of drugs, Aphex Twin stays winning.
