Escobar Marion – “Vbe Solely”
The drunken, wobbly dance strikes and clap-heavy twerk beats that we love within the Milwakee rap scene proper now have largely been revived and reimagined from Milwaukee’s banging period, a dance-focused, 2010s musical second that has little digital footprint. Suppose New York’s Get Lite motion or Chicago footwork, if you would like a comparability of types. On “Vbe Solely,” Escobar Marion lays down some unmixed raps over a fast-paced throwback Ching Crew beat; distorted 808s combine with robotic handclaps and what appears like a Fisher-Worth keyboard melody as he simply barely manages to get his (doubtless freestyled) rhymes to pierce by the noise. At one level it appears like two totally different songs are by chance being performed on the similar time, however no, that is all intentional homage.
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 submit to focus on the tune you could hear.
