Think Tank ft. Wrekonize (of ¡MAYDAY!) - People of the Sun

Producer:
Llamabeats
Album:
Mashed Potatoes

As much as I love world premieres, there’s one tiny downside to having a record before everyone else: when I’m unsure how to sum a cut up in a neat paragraph, there’s no Googling for second opinions. Usually, it’s not a problem, but People of the Sun, the final leak off Miami crew Think Tank‘s forthcoming mixtape, is one tough nut to crack. Guest emcee Wrekonize kicks his opener off with the lines “Good morning, I remember back in 2001, when the planet wasn’t run by the fiberoptic young…,” and things only get stranger from there – backed by Llamabeats’ deceptively mellow beat, the ¡MAYDAY! member hooks up with Think Tank vocalists Spit and Parable to detail a dark future reminiscent of The Matrix... except there’s no Matrix. And everyone‘s a robot… I think? Am I overanalyzing? Probably – but, whether you attempt to fully untangle the political commentary in the collaborators’ dystopian vision, or just sit back and soak in the creativity, it’s a worthy listen. Perhaps we can expect some answers on Nov. 2, when their Booth-sponsored Mashed Potatoes street album hits our mixtape page. Then again, maybe not.
