This isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I said Chuuuch (Rev. Burke) should be releasing more music. The song feels overcooked, the production flourishes overpower Chuuuch’s performance instead of highlighting it. But I don’t hate it either, even when weighed down with a bit too much studio trickery his rapping remains outstanding. Maybe the name/character dichotomy is throwing me off, maybe Chuuuch is his flashy side while Burke is the more straightforward rapping persona. I might just need to account for that going forward and not expect him to exhale breathless monster verses over simple loops when he is Chuuuch mode.
This song is now selling via itunes HERE.
