Example rap: “What kind of person could I possibly become when my personality is dependent on a drug / And usually more than one, ’cause too much of anything is never enough.”
In short, GDP hates modern rap. That’s enough to make me recommend it to you. But before you think this is an “ABC Afterschool Special,” note this choice line: “Fucking gas is too expensive, man / Better send some more fucking troops / Start a fucking draft.”
Yes, he also hates senseless war, poverty, overmedication, taxes, FEMA … OK, pretty much everything. He’s anti-authoritarian and anti-proletariat. I’m not sure who GDP likes, but his upset insights are delivered in a brutal, brittle, confrontational style that grabs my ears and doesn’t let go. Pair his excellent rapping with grimy, grinding, claustrophobic beats, and his “Useless Eaters” album becomes easily my favorite of the year so far in that genre.
