MIXTAPE: BONES – CRACKER

2013-09-29 15.00.14Last Sunday Team Sesh artist Bones released his greatly anticipated mixtape “Cracker” and to no surprise, it’s arguably his best work yet. Funneling the emotion and sound of 90s grunge music into that tumblr-age rap we all love, he creates a sound that is truly unique.

The opening track to Cracker, TheWhiteWitch starts off with Bones setting the record straight to the “internet” haters talking down on his music. “I aint trying to be white, I aint trying to black, I aint trying to act, I’m not even tyring to rap” He also addresses the fact that other ‘musicians’ are starting to copy his sound but (obviously) no one can do it quite like him. All of this done over a very ethereal and hallucinogenic influenced beat

The tape is very versatile in the sense that it offers somber guitar-heavy tracks such as “Thorns” and then transitions into a more hardcore tone reminiscent of 80’s punk music on the song “Moshpits” which features longtime collaborator X. Wulf (formerly known as Ethelwulf). Bone’s even landed a feature from the infamous Gangsta Boo, of ThreeSix Mafia fame, for the track “UndergroundLegends” where he finesses over the beat with an expert flow to compliment Boo’s lyrical mastery.

The standout track on Cracker would definitely have to be “Backroads”, in this song he critiques the materialism that has taken over the minds of not only the rap scene but all of society in general. Yet at the same time he deals with emotional struggles we all experience on the hook “friends turn strangers, life gets stranger/world starts changing I gotta stay adjacent” Truly a line of wisdom regarding growing up and the passing of time.

Overall Cracker is the perfect balance between Bones rapping while still showcasing his ability to sing (even screaming in a few of the tracks too). With most of the songs lasting  slightly more than two-minutes it’s a relatively quick listen but a very enjoyable one nonetheless.

Cracker has got me thinking that if Kurt Cobain was born in 1994, he would probably make music in a very similar fashion to Bones.

WHY MILEY WHY

The VMA’s we’re pretty boring but we learned an important face about Miley Cyrus, her ass is rather peculiar…as these comparisons show.
