Izaya Tiji’s coos sound like the wind whistling through a door crack. His wordless wails make it clear how emotionally difficult it is for him to just say what he’s feeling. “Earth is Hell,” a gut punch from his new EP Nevameant2b, is pure melodrama. The piano-driven beat could backdrop an Attack on Titan AMV, and Tiji squeezes out moans, draining himself further with each vocalization. After listening to this, you might need to grab a seat and gather your thoughts.
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.
