Update: The Hunter Lyon-directed visuals for Sikai's D.R.U.G.S. in America single have been added.
The latest project from Sikai, the Connecticut rhymesayer last featured with 2013's The Vibes, has taken quite a bit longer than expected. You can chalk that up to perfectionism, rather than a lax work ethic; apparently, he's already scapped an entire project (save for one or two tracks) to start with a tabula rasa. On the bright side, when the project does arrive, it's gonna be dope as f*ck, judging by freshly-minted lead single and pseudo-title track D.R.U.G.S. in America. Here, Treadway's disquieting reversed-vocal sample beat sets the stage for a wide-ranging lyrical exploration of the United States' relationship with addiction. Painkiller: D.R.U.G.S. in America still lacks a drop date, but we'll keep you posted as we learn more.
