I was in London for a Heems show this week (the rapper formerly from Das Racist), which was without question one of the most bizarre concert experiences of my life, but a bright spot came from one of the show’s openers, Black Other.
Weaving heavily lyrical verses into old school boom-bap beats, the English group creates a truly pleasant sound unmatched by many in hip-hop today, especially for someone with only 41 Twitter followers. I knew after hearing their set that I had to investigate further, and I was even more impressed after I found their video for “Keep Movin’,” the band’s only released song so far. Keep your eyes on these guys, because their talent proves they have a lot of potential – even from only listening to one song. Stream above. Cheers.
