Meet Spooky Black – the strangest looking artist we’ve seen in a while. No one will ever admit to being overly-judgemental, but when you see this guy you won’t expect what you hear.
Clicking on this video I fully expected to hear some hipster-cloud-rap-semi-racist-bullshit, along the same vein as Lil B and Yung Lean. Stood in the snow in a Blair Witch-style music video, was some barely 18 white guy dressed like a cunt, throwing up gang signs. However, as soon as the kid opened his mouth, I was blown away.
To be fair, Spooky Black does have bit of a cloud-rap vibe – the ethereal instrumental’s compliment his haunting singing voice. A singing voice, that is actually very very strong. He sings with pain in his voice, complimented by surprisingly mature songwriting.
We don’t know much about him yet, except that he’s occasionally known as Lil Spook, he has a penchant for turtle necks and durags and his album is available to download for just $1. Do yourself a favor and cop it now.
Expect this guy to blow up in the next couple of days. His PR skills must be ridiculous to get this many people talking about him already. What the future holds for Spooky Black, who knows? We’re excited to find out though.
