Once a member of backpack eccentric crew Supreeme, Atlanta's Negashi Armada has been reborn as Blunt Fang. With "Crystal Power" he mumbles decidedly post-Based raps about H. Rap Brown and FAO Schwartz while pacing awkwardly in front of a blue screen with a very Spirit of Truth swagger. He also smokes an amethyst crystal like it's a crack rock (word to Ray from Slam. In an interview with Creative Loafing the ATLien broke down his mission statement of not ever sounding like Outkast. If that's the measuring stick then "Crystal Power" can only be seen as a grand triumph.
