Lucas Foster is ghost hunting in the Haight-Ashbury District.

Astari is a discerning tastemaker and aesthetician and what he has done with his YouTube channel this decade was important to the development and proliferation of underground rap’s sound and aesthetic like nothing else. He has never compromised his commitment to quality, and this Tommy Ice single is certainly no exception. Tommy is one of Atlanta’a rising stars, with organic buzz in the city, a reputation for both consistency and quality that is deserved. 

“Gelato” is downtempo and finds our protagonist wistful in a rhinestone embedded hat. rellymade’s guitar sample production is hypnotic and of the moment and Tommy dropping bars like “She say I’m different I still don’t know what that means” is exactly what the people want. You won’t be able to ignore him if you try next year.
