Lyrical assassin Sharif Hassan takes on gold digger culture with ‘Facetime’.

Harlem, New York-hailing rap artist Sharif Hassan points out the pitfalls in Millennial living in their soulful yet savage debut album, ‘Black Millennial’.

You scarcely need his bio to tell you that he started as a slam poet; each line in the standout track, Facetime, is practically a lyrical assassination for anyone with the audacity to buy into gold digger culture. Many rap artists may have enabled the culture by glamorising it, but Sharif Hassan paints a gritty portrait of just how insidious it is. With the dubstep style beats in place of the usual flat 808s, this high vibe vindicating track is well worth consideration for your summer hip hop playlists.
