Johnny Polygon ft. Gabriel Royal - rapcom

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Johnny Polygon & Joel Buikema
Album:
Pu**y Gun

When your last name is an obscure geometric shape you can’t just get by with the same old, same old, and sure enough Johnny Polygon has never been one to hold back from experimentation. Need an example? How about new release rapcom, which finds the DNA of Polygon’s raps combined with Capcom’s classic arcade game Street Fighter. (Get it?) On the boards the headliner and Joel Buikema manage to put together a beat that’s obviously video game influenced without going overboard, sprinkling in some very a propos samples while the bass knocks. On the mic both Polygon and collaborator Gabriel Royal take care to keep their rhymes both aggressive and, well, kind of weird: “No cocaine, I blow my own mind, no Cobain.” Fans eager for more impossible to categorize music can keep an eye out for Polygon’s profanely titled Pu**y Gun album, which is still awaiting an official release date.
