Demahjiae Bibbens is an Oakland based MC and half of the do more collective. I have been keeping up with this rapper when I previously found him through Ovrkast‘s production credits. This track specifically caught my eye due to its complex beat with beautiful guitar riffs and rich strings. Paired with Demahjiae‘s smooth flowing bars and soul sample, this 1 minute track is loaded from start to finish. With a lot to digest in only the first listen, Demahjiae proves to not only be a perplexingly good producer, but also demonstrate his fluent songwriting ability. The new generation of Earl Sweatshirt-esque rappers is an exciting bunch to keep an eye on; they’re well written, well produced, and their subject matter keeps me hooked from start to finish.
