Lucas Foster could make Cooperstown with all these hits.
Grimm Doza has been a lodestar of lo-fi and Neo-Memphian production for what seems like an eon in the attention-deficient, lightning-quick culture of internet underground rap. Perhaps that’s because his stylistic diversity gives him the freedom of a cash-flushed venture capitalist. His ear, his ideas, his production will be sought after as long as rappers need silky loops distressed with a lo-fidelity bleaching.
On his most recent outing with radical traditionalist Fly Anakin he has summoned a wonky melodic coupling that sounds like it was lifted from minute 29 of an alternate timeline Black Moth Super Rainbow album, paired with an SP-1200 drum loop, and microwaved. I should not need to educate you on Fly Anakin’s skills as a wordsmith, but Grimm Doza keeps pace with him in a way that would make the ghost of Big Ghost LTD write something gleefully offensive.
Anyone who cares about keeping the torch of rap’s Golden Age lit into this decade will have this on repeat.
