Mercury – “Geeked Up”
On Mercury’s 2020 breakout “Slob on My Kat,” the Atlanta-based rapper, producer, and skateboarder put an ethereal spin on La Chat’s timeless Memphis basic. Nothing she’s launched since has sounded fairly prefer it, however her finest songs to this point share a equally dreamlike really feel. On “Geeked Up,” a observe on her new challenge Tabula Rasa, she seems like she’s falling right into a trance over a lush self-produced beat (with co-production from Surf Gang’s EvilGiane). She raps her phrases so slowly and lethargically that the tune feels about twice so long as its two and a half minutes. “Geeked Up” is a becoming title.
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 day by day submit to spotlight the tune you must hear.
