Phaseone has been around for a while, sharpening his teeth remixing Animal Collective and with his own work like his The Realest Shit mixtape. But with “Blood Spirit I,” he’s taken a turn from his usual rap-imbued endeavors to craft something warped and ethereal. “Blood” comes from his upcoming Williams Street Records release If I Tell U. Williams is the Adult Swim-affiliated label responsible for last year’s incendiary R.A.P. Music from Killer Mike, so their A&R chops are pretty deep. Check out the Phaseone cut below.
If I Tell U is out 5/7 on Williams Street Records.
