Lazer Dim 700: “Sabatahj”
Just about each time I hear a brand new rapper from Atlanta, all I can assume is they’re completely dropping their minds in Atlanta. It’s music for the tip of days, the sort of songs that make you need to repent, which, in different phrases, is to say that it’s the proper soundtrack for our madly corporatized current and future. Lazer Dim 700’s “sabatahj” stirs up comparable emotions. The anarchic ATL up-and-comer slips into this staggering, punched-in stream the place virtually each line is stepping on the one which comes earlier than it—the vibes are a doomsday-ready mix of Kasher Quon meets Goonew meets Younger Nudy. Producer onetwofive’s uncontrollably honking 808s solely makes all of it that rather more chaotic—it sounds just like the evacuation alarm of a nuclear energy plant. The music video nails down the vibe: He wanders round empty graffiti-covered tunnels and skateparks like he (and some skaters) are the one folks left on Earth.
With artists releasing songs at a quick and livid tempo, it’s tough for the typical hip-hop head to maintain observe of all of it—regardless of how tapped in they’re. That’s why we created The Ones, a every day put up to spotlight the tune you should hear.
