This is definitely one of Kevin’s best solo tracks.

SLUGGER is the kinda direction I hope Kevin Abstract goes in going forward. I liked Arizona Baby, but I prefer this sound from him.The production on here is great, I absolutely love the energy the song has, and while $NOT isn’t amazing on here (his verse is solid though), I really like both Kevin and Slowthai’s verses.

Estou começando a achar que será responsabilidade dos artistas queers salvarem o atual hip hop. Depois de Lil Nas X, outro nome que vem ganhando notoriedade é a do rapper Kevin Abstract. Abertamente gay e parte do grupo colaborativo Brockhampton, o rapper lançou a ótima SLUGGER.

SLUGGER, primeiro single do seu quarto álbum, é uma demonstração da força criativa de Kevin ao entregar um potente e áspero hip hop que foge ... read more
