Odd Couple ft. Skyzoo - Speak It Vivid

Posted 4 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Odd Couple
Album:
Separated at Birth

Booth newcomers Zhendee and The Exceptionalist may be an Odd Couple but, like fractious roommates Felix Unger and Oscar Madison, their differences only make them a stronger pair. (As for who’s who, I’ll leave the question open.) By way of proof, I present Speak It Vivid, the latest leak off the Chi-town production duo’s forthcoming debut. Inspired by a line from Muggs’ Real Life (“The streets are frigid, so I speak it vivid…”), this freshly-released cut finds the crew crafting a dense, reverb-drenched synth-sample canvas for one of rap’s most skilled painters of word-pictures. I’m talking, of course, about Brooklyn mic-murderer Skyzoo, who laces the beat with rhymes as bruising as they are poetically intricate: “Motherf*ckers just so ag, so fast / Sleepin’ with sleep’s cousin and brought they own bags / Zippers all ready homie, no snags / Try and figure all that out, got ‘em closed cast.” A welcome change of pace from the usual monochrome offerings, Speak It Vivid is just one of many ill records to be found on Odd Couple’s debut EP, Separated at Birth. Keep it locked for further details on the project which has yet to receive a solid drop date.
