Abdu Ali – “Say Something” (Stereogum Premiere)
The Baltimore rap expressionist Abdu Ali has lately carved out a reputation for himself as one of the most restless, creative minds working on the periphery of the city’s club-rap scene. He’s got a frantic, intense delivery, and he belongs as much within Baltimore’s noise-punk lineage as with its club music underground. Next week, he’ll release his first-ever slab of vinyl in the form of his Infinity Epiphanies EP, and its opening track is “Say Something,” a splenetic burst of noise-rap produced by the Baltimore club iconoclast Schwarz. Listen to it below.
Infinity Epiphanies is out 6/24 on Araçá.
