Hide Your Mic, Hide Your Kids
!nfidel Ca$htro (damn, that's a hard one to type) is a lyrical genius. His dark southern rhymes sound like they're being written by a psychopath...and a fiercely intelligent one (maybe the street version of Hannibal Lector). The whole track is basically one constant flow, just a smidgeon behind the beat in that iconic southern style. In "iLL," Cashtro's gritty voice coughs up rhyme after rhyme, using brilliant internal and alternative rhyme schemes that require a few listens to catch. The simple accompaniment is built out of distorted bass runs, one after the other, sometimes distorted and sometimes not, and using a mix of clap tracks, scratches, and other drum samples as a beat. MF Doom comes to mind, though I can't think of a truly good comparison for this rapper from the music capitol of the world (New Orleans, Louisiana).
