If Eminem’s Stan was released in 2018, I’m fairly certain that it would come out sounding a little something like Jim X William’s latest drop “Dissociation”. With a New Wave Trap style beat paired with haunting atmospheric harmonies Jim X William has just set the bar for the rest of his Hip Hop counterparts.
With so much emotivity, humility and honesty penned into the lyrics which are delivered through complete, unquestionable authority, you’re treated to a hard-hitting Hip Hop soundscape, which you’re not likely to forget in a hurry. The sentiment behind the track doesn’t lie embedded within self-aggrandization or self-pity, instead it’s perceptible that Jim X William served up a piece of his soul in the lyrical shots fired.
If you can get to the end of Dissociation without feeling sobered, I’d start to question whether you’re actually human.
