Signor Benedick The Moor, the Sacramento MC with one of the most curious monikers in rap history, recently released a noisy patchwork of electro-metal curved hip hop that handled dark and intense themes. The album, titled El Negro, is available for streaming over at his bandcamp page, and don’t miss the visuals for album highlight “..//End” with the already classic lines “whatever it is rappers rap about / I don’t even listen anymore”, which you can watch here.
A few days back, the 20 year old offered a new track, titled “I. A Boy A Man A King”. It’s yet to be determined whether the track is a leftover from the El Negro sessions, or a major step towards something new, but the production work is characteristically brazen; full of peculiarities that mostly sound like Danny Brown crashing a concert at the Vienna Musikverein. It’s also a creative, melodic and an uncompromisingin ways that makes Signor Benedick The Moor one of the most progressive underground MC’s around.
