There is absolutely nothing I love more than a captivatingly haunted prelude to a Hip Hop Rap track curtesy of a pensively keyed piano. Which is exactly what A-Bad treated his fans to with his new release Like Bron which dropped in May 2018. The production on the track was flawless, every level sat at the perfect pitch to allow the beat to captivate around A-Bad’s relentlessly visceral Rap bars. A-Bad’s flow has a way of making you itch to crank up the volume with his multi-layered beat which allowed the emerging Hip Hop artist to truly stamp down his style. Whilst A-Bad isn’t short of competition, he has a way of iridescently standing out from the rest with the amount of amplified momentum behind his mixes. It’s pretty rare that you’ll find that amount of progression contained within a Hip Hop track through which A-Bad offered bass, melody, hooks vibes and chills all in the space of four minutes.
