If a track manages to fix a smile on your face for the entire 4:25 minute duration, you know it’s a keeper. Which is why I didn’t hesitate when it came to adding Doc STRANGE’s single ROSWELL ft. Kris Boss to my Hip Hop playlists. The instant amiability may have something to do with the fact that I’m a major X-files fan, yet, I can’t say that any Rap artist has ever combined Sci Fi and Hip Hop quite so synergistically before now. It makes one hell of a refreshing change for a Rap artist to be versing about anything other than misogyny and Hennessey. Whilst Doc STRANGE & Kris Boss have a touch of the Fresh Prince vibes about their track ROSWELL, they’ve kept it fresh with some Nerdcore Waves which come alive through the ingenious lyricism which flows to perfect meter and rhyme.
You can check out ROSWELL for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now where you will find the single amongst 12 other tracks from Doc STRANGE’s 2018 album ‘AAA’.
