If you were under the impression that sad Hip Hop couldn’t be fire, you may want to check out BLVCK ZEDSU’s recently dropped single “Insomnia”.
Mixing pensive alt-rock guitars with solid trap beats allowed Insomnia to become a universally accessible hit which easily hooks you in through the harrowed melodies. Unlike most Hip Hop which sits on the more melancholic side, Insomnia wasn’t a display of self-pity, it was raw, resonant, honest expression versed through witty bars.
While BLVCK ZEDSU can lyrically hold their own, they brought in Rap artist Cliiiford, to introduce more chemistry and yet another dynamic into the experimentally unforgettable mix which constantly evolves throughout the duration.
