The most popular thing to say about Hip-Hop right now is that it has no substance. People love to talk about how it’s all about production, now, and that artists are placing less emphasis on lyrical content. These radio warriors couldn’t be more wrong, as we’ve come across some of the best written music ever, the last 5 years. Looking to be embraced in that realm, Las Vegas rapper, 88N8 takes an emotional turn and delivers his engaging new record, “Crying While I’m High.”
Produced by Sonobeats and SpeakerBangerz, the ambient record finds it’s groove in the sheer honesty within it’s content. Speaking about a love that’s lost, he accurately utilizes auto-tune to create an infectious and melodic single that at the same time, doesn’t lack in melody. Serving as his first release of the year, this song should without a doubt create a bit of traffic for the Vegas native.
