Ghostpoet describes his dark tales of everyday life hanging out, partying and drinking as his “pacemaker, conscience and compass.” The corners of his mind are rife with keepsakes like a smashed cell phone, empty bottles of alcohol, all remnants of nights that seem to have turned blurry in his memory.
Listen to a song like “Cash and Carry Me Home,” and his monotone rattles rapping in a stream of consciousness style, reminiscent of a guy he looks up to: Mike Skinner better known as The Streets. By the time his British-Jamaican twang takes over the chorus, lighters are up, not just to bow down to it’s authentic UK 2-step shuffle, but also because it’s the much-needed guide into Ghostpoet’s cloudy past. Audio after the jump.
