Lazer Dim 700: “Sabatahj”
Just about each time I hear a brand new rapper from Atlanta, all I can suppose is they’re completely dropping their minds in Atlanta. It’s music for the tip of days, the form of songs that make you wish 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 nearly 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 individuals left on Earth.
With artists releasing songs at a quick and livid tempo, it’s troublesome for the common hip-hop head to maintain monitor of all of it—regardless of how tapped in they’re. That’s why we created The Ones, a day by day submit to focus on the music you could hear.
