Blaq Kush – ““Long Island Acid Jazz”

View Iframe URL

Blaq Kush is content to reside in his own corner and watch the rest of the world go by. He has a conspiratorial eye, but he balances paranoia with humor. On “Long Island Acid Jazz,” a recent loosie, he raps over a guitar riff that feels like it was left over from MF DOOM’s Born Like This sessions—it’s heavily distorted and it sounds like it was taken from a live show. He interjects story snippets between his cryptic lines, cycling through characters like a novelist. He’ll detail a moment of psychiatric confusion (“Therapist tried to listen but never heard his rage”), then pivot to slice-of-life awkwardness (“Thought of saying good morning, you heard a nervous ‘hey’”). As he runs through these narratives, he drops witty asides (“Nobody can see me/I’m Blind Fury from 106”) and statements of purpose (“Never blame the music/Just blame the market and publicists”). It’s a densely packed barrage delivered with ease.

With artists releasing songs at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average hip-hop head to keep track of it all—no matter how tapped in they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
