Tricky – “Lonnie Listen” (Feat. Mykki Blanco & Francesca Belmonte)
British trip-hop originator Tricky and New York-based nutball Mykki Blanco belong to two very different generations of rap iconoclasm, but they’ve come together on “Lonnie Listen,” a track from Tricky’s new album Adrian Thaws. And they have a pretty strong chemistry, the two of them trading unstable muttery verses over a beat that sounds like club-rap eating itself. Francesca Belmonte, who also sings on the Adrian Thaws lead single “Nicotine Love,” sings the narcotized chorus. If you’ve got Spotify, you can hear it below.
Adrian Thaws is out 9/8 on False Idols.
