Borleone – “Deadman Strolling”
Borleone is a kind of rappers whose music drifts out and in of my life, and every time I return to his catalog I’m wondering why I’m not listening to him all the time. That occurred to me this week when I discovered myself clicking by outdated mixtapes on the Suitland, Maryland rapper’s SoundCloud web page, the place his tight, whispery supply is laid over beats which might be generally funky, generally soulful, and generally sound like they may soundtrack a slasher flick. “Deadman Strolling” is his most up-to-date single, and he appears like he is recounting a horror story over the hazy beat. His grim raps are simpler over the course of a mixtape—I recommend 2020’s atmospheric Do or Die—however it will do for now.
With artists releasing songs at a quick and livid tempo, it’s troublesome for the common 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 each day put up to spotlight the music you’ll want to hear.
