Lighthearted, sample-filled, with a non-stop flow that’s in your face from start to finish, ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ is 1’18” of ‘statement of intent’ hip hop from DangerousX, all rapid-fire hi hat triplets and thunderous bass kick behind DangerousX’s aural assault.
Sure, there’s an Eminem/Shady vibe going on, the lyrical content turning slights into ‘rap-fuel’ in the way Marshall Mathers does so well, spitting out put-downs over the heavyweight backing. Sadly, it’s over too quickly, but ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ shows some real promise here; keep an eye out for DangerousX – who knows where he’ll end up.
