Flying Lotus leaves the jazz fusion of You’re Dead!, his newly released album, for a minute and returns to some pretty straightforward hip hop beats on his Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack contribution “Medication Meditation”. The track features lyrics from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony member Krayzie Bone, backround vocals from Niki Randa and live bass play provided by Thundercat. The beats are haunting and nocturnal, while leaving plenty of space for Krayzie Bone’s to spit his rapid flows. But as with all of FlyLo’s best work, “Medication Meditation” is about three minutes too short.
