Kill-F (Will “Waka Flocka” F. ’13, of Static Stamina, Wes Pacific, other things) has just released his first EP, Very Good. The EP, recorded “in closets in New Jersey” and produced by Dan Nass ’13 (under the moniker D’Brickashaw), criss-crosses a variety of hip hop genres, never settling on single style or trend. In general, it seems like the product of a short attention span and lots of clever ideas. I mean that as a compliment.
“Don Cheadle” stands out to this blogger as one of the strongest tracks on the EP, due to some of the best beats and a pretty hilarious chorus in which Kill ponders “What makes dogs sad? What makes a dog cry? What makes dogs bad? Why must dogs die?”
The final track, “E E E E E E E E,” is a kind of a mindfuck. If you can figure out the riddle in the song’s title, you might have some idea of what to expect. Suffice to say, it’s not really about the ostensible story of vengeance. The track also features additional production and some epic soloing from Adrien DeFontaine ’13 (aka Crook$hanks), Wesleyan’s preeminent rocker for hire. Check it all out on the BRANDCAMP. It’s available for free download. LINK HERE.
