Odell Lancaster (one half of hip-hop duo Notorious Bastards) collaborates with KeyDaIntro on his latest single, produced by Venturebeatsofficial.
“Mindset” displays the same dusty, crate-digging tendencies as Odell’s work with Notorious Bastards, with chimes, gentle cymbals, and a slithering flute melody providing backing for veil-piercing rhymes about politics (“The president’s evil/And the polls ain’t nothing but thin paper see-throughs”), temperance (“Fuck the juice/I have no use”), and life itself (“I might not wake up tomorrow/But it don’t matter/And I’m spittin'”). Odell makes heavy use of internal rhymes, his rubbery flow making the tricky wordplay sound effortless. KeyDaIntro contributes a suitably mellow chorus, providing a dose of soulful melody to balance out the dense lyricism. Check this one out if you like hip-hop of the chin-stroking variety.
