IAMJFK gets the competition selling their mic’s on Ebay via the outstanding new single about current day affairs called ‘Spitting‘.
Released off indie label Miscellaneous Muzik, IAMJFK is a Chicago, Illinois-based underground emcee who spits with that eloquently real style that reminds you of the old school kind of hip-hop artist with astonishing insight and soul. With so many fake poser flash-in-the-pans suffocating the youth with their watered-down false narratives of experiences they saw in a movie, you get the impression that this one of those rare emcee’s that is speaking from the heart and with true stories.
He rips down verses like an experienced builder, slamming the bars the dust with an metaphorical sledgehammer as his mind is so advanced from normal rappers. His rhymes about what is happening before his eyes outside keeps you intrigued all the way, with the Blazing Saddles mention a particular highlight.
The revolution that is currently happening in the USA has shocked many but it shouldn’t be a surprise and it has been brewing for years and years. Bad role models have come and gone, leaving destruction in their wake. Luckily music has been documenting everything and this is the type of song that will be timeless and appreciated for years due to the introspective lyricism that shines through all the current darkness.
‘Spitting‘ from self-aware Chicago emcee IAMJFK is the type of hip-hop release that actually means something and deserves love from the streets. In an often confusing world, full of misinformation and hate, this is music that educates the hard working common man and woman-showing you what it’s really like inside- as the gritty rawness encapsulates life at present so vividly and truthfully bare.
When you are struggling to grasp what is real or not, true underground music gives us a flashlight to enter the tunnels of truth that has been hidden away for way too long.
