"Why They Hate Us | cuz we rvidxrz" by Key Nyata
It's finally here, teenage Seattle rapper/producer Key Nyata's "Two Phonkey" album, one of the best realizations yet of the Rvidxr Klvn (Raider Klan) aesthetic. Download it for free at the link above, and listen to "Why They Hate Us | cuz we rvidxrs" below that, a song that sonically expresses Key Nyata's allegiance to the rap movement started by Florida's Spaceghostpurrp. Ambient noise and a dark, '90s spirit haunt the album, which mainly features Key Nyata's own murky production, slow and trance-y like black metal. The rhymes push the same mood. Several times on "Two Phonkey" Key Nyata asks the listener to "look into my eyes," and it's always a weird dare. What do you find there? Flames, bodies, broken glass.
