hasHBrown - Crazy

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Jett I. Masstyr
Album:
Sa(1)me EP

Although he appeared previously on the Booth with Forgive Me Not, I hadn’t personally heard hasHBrown prior to this song, but it looks like he’s serving some food for thought. On his new single Crazy, produced by Jett I Masstyr, hasH tells a story many can relate to over a sped-up soul sample that sounds like something 2005 Kanye would’ve made: a story about when you’re the only person that believes in you and your grind, and everyone else tells you what you’re doing is futile. Just take the hook: “I ain’t have no sleep pursuing my dreams, chasing this cream and I been doing some things. They say I’m crazy…I think they crazy.” But “no matter what they say just know [hasH] keep going,” and I respect that. While the concept, the production and hasH’s flow are all on-point, the caliber of rhymes fell slightly short of expectation. That said, if hasH is as driven as he proclaims on the song, he’s only gonna keep getting better. Crazy is off his forthcoming EP Sa(1)me Time, which hits the net August 20. More importantly, though, what y’all think?
