I can’t say I always enjoy ISSUE’s music, but I do appreciate his unique vision. Listening to him feels like watching a fascinating experiment happen right before your eyes, and even if it doesn’t succeed you’re glad you saw it happen. Here my initial reaction is positive, but I can’t exactly explain why. As ISSUE himself admitted the sound of it skews toward PIG, which I wasn’t a huge fan of. So theoretically I shouldn’t even like it, but I kinda do. Maybe it’s because I am always intrigued by his work, in a way that I can’t easily articulate. It just hooks me, and that’s exactly what this song did.
This song is the first single from ISSUE’s Gotham City mixtape, which will be out July 20th.
