Matter rule. Not content with dominating the word-of-mouth circuit, last year’s runners-up climbed to the top with their second studio album.
The foundation remains the same – trendy cloud rap/trap flirtations, fastidiously produced beats, and abstract lyricism that lets you discover your own meanings through a tangle of quotable, insta-hip slang expressions.
Compared to their debut, however, the production is more polished, the auto-tune is dialled up to just the right amount, the tinge of urban darkness is more pronounced, and the entire package is oozing with street-smart style, from the broadly appealing summer hit vibe of “MANA” to the murky haze of lead single “Sinovi moje madre”.
Matter rule and it doesn’t look like they’re planning on giving up the throne any time soon.(Daniel Sheppard)
