Cash Cobain – “Rump Punch”

Cash Cobain – “Rump Punch”

In the past few weeks, the New York sexy-drill pioneer Cash Cobain, one of our favorite new artists of last year, has released a couple of collaborations with big stars: “Grippy” with J. Cole, the “Fisherr” remix with Ice Spice. Next month, he’ll head out on tour as Ice Spice’s opener. But Cobain has kept his horny-weirdo underground particularities intact, and you can hear them at work on his new single “Rump Punch.”

Google does not like the title of “Rump Punch,” and I think it might actually be a mistake, not innuendo? On the chorus, he singsongs about “pussy tastes like rum punch,” and I think that’s what he means. If the pussy tastes like rump punch, then it tastes like ass-flavored Hi-C, which does not sound like a compliment. He says it like it’s a good thing. I don’t know. Art is mysterious. Some things are just up for interpretation.

“Rump Punch” has a weirdly beautiful beat, with its drill woodblock percussion gently cutting through a fog of miasmic keyboards that he could’ve easily sampled from an Enya record. Cloud-rap is back, baby! Below, listen to “Rump Punch” and check out the dates for the Ice Spice/Cash Cobain Y2K Tour.
