Aleon Craft is just a little too strange for mainstream rap (see A Different World). And Hollyweerd is, well, just a little too weird for mainstream rap (see Edible Phat 2.0). So it’s no coincidence that the two boundary-breakers and brothers in oddity have linked up for the remix to Craft’s spacey Wonderland. Production team SMKA drops a funky, spacey and bouncing beat for Aleon to spit rhymes about a certain female’s best attributes (John Mayer this isn’t), which he delivers in his trademark breathy cadence, while on the front end the Hollyweerd crew assists with more of the smoothly flying rhymes they’re becoming know for, dropping reference to everything from MC Hammer to Southern food staples. Seriously, there’s got to be something they put in Atlanta’s drinking water. They do know it’s supposed to be fluoride, not LSD, right? Whatever we have to thank for this refreshingly original hip-hop, you can bank on Aleon’s upcoming project The Stargazing Soundtrack to be just as creatively forceful when it drops August 16, right here on DJBooth.
