New Tracks: Le1f- Damn Son
New York rapper Le1F has released the first track to his upcoming mixtape "Tree House", which is due to be released next month. Le1f became surrounded by heavy doses of praise and generally favourable blogosphere hype when he dropped his debut mixtape "Fly Zone" earlier this year.
His new track is titled "Damn Son", and lyrically finds him sounding as proud, comfortable and cocky as ever. His flow and lyrics evoke a kind of cocksure ease that is means all attention is fundamentally on him when he raps, even if his flow is quite understated. The instrumental, produced by Shy Guy, is a fluttering, glacial but also calm and summery fest of colourful synth arpeggios and progressions. I do like the overall feel of this track and Le1f is certainly an MC who can hold my attention, but the hook is generally pretty irritating.
"Tree House" is due to be released on September 10th. You can stream and download "Damn Son" for free via the Soundcloud link below.
