Up and coming Alt Rap artist Shrt_Lyf dropped their aggressively absorbing Trap single “Sloppy Top” on September 2nd. If you haven’t already had the pleasure of revelling in Shrt_Lyf’s own organic brand of experimentalism, Sloppy Top is the perfect introduction.
Their dark and macabre style throws you right back to the days when there was plenty of people on the hype around the Insane Clown Posse. Yet, Shrt_Lyf’s sound is firmly rooted in the new wave of Hip Hop. There will be plenty of Billie Eilish comparisons made as the world wakes up to Shrt_Lyf’s charmingly fierce approach to Rap. But credit where credit is due. Shrt_Lyf is a pioneer through the way he seamlessly merged old school Rap with new wave to create an accessibly refreshing hit.
