Yesterday, in songs of the day #2, I included Moral Of The Story by an artist called watsky. I only knew that song by him, after DumCheesr included it in his 5 day song challenge. Then , the_great_awesome told me to listen to woah woah woah. I was seriously impressed. And so I listened to sloppy seconds (from cardboard castles) and talking to myself (from infinity x). And so, by today, I have listened to all of his albums besides the self titled one and watched all of the music videos. Sometimes I say that there are no great upcoming artists. And now I realise that I was so wrong. Because Watsky is the single best thing to happen to rap and hip hop since public enemy and RUN-DMC. These songs have the best lyrics that have ever been spoken by a rapper. Yes. They’re that good.
And so, for any of you who don’t know watsky, here is the guide to listening:
- The moral of the story is
- Woah woah woah
- Sloppy seconds
- Talking to myself
- The entirety of infinity x
So I thank the_great_awesome and DumCheese for showing me one of the best artist of the 21st century.
