Now and again, a completely new rap voice emerges, which oozes with authentic personality and cuttingly fresh diction. Most recently, it was the up-and-coming artist Sin, with his latest single, Deskjob.
The Toronto-based rapper, songwriter, and producer bit back at late-stage capitalism with bruising bars, such as, “fuck a deskjob, I’m never doing that, I’d rather die than just be a fucking peasant for a whack bitch”. While the lo-fi indie-vibe instrumentals brought yet another addictively original element to the galvanising track that is arguably better than anything Eminem has released in recent years. It’s raw. It’s real. Its earworm nature begs for repeat attention.
Deskjob is now available to stream on YouTube.
