Khemist - Now Inside

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: Khemist

While heads with a taste for the spacey and surreal often look to Atlanta’s ever-innovative scene for their hip-hop needs, Peach State natives don’t have a monopoly on out-of-this-world beats and rhymes. With Now Inside, a standout track off his latest full-length, Booth newcomer Khemist provides compelling evidence that Philly can be just as eccentrically fresh. Backed by Squizzy‘s woozy, chopped-soul sample boardwork, the up-and-comer gives us a guided tour of a world beyond ours; a world packed with bouncy flows and free-associated braggadocio. Khemist’s creative lyrical sensibility, along with the gritty instrumental vibe add up to a cut with undeniable left-of-center appeal, but the artist doesn’t neglect to include a few words for the haters: “Damn sure it ain’t something that you’re gonna rebel against / if you do, then your mind is a caged pelican.” Touché! If that unusual diss doesn’t apply to you, you can hear plenty more where this came from on the artist’s EPPD (Exotic Prodigy Pluto Distributors) LP, released June 29, and out now online.
