Brooklyn native and former X-Factor contestant Astro might be young, but judging from his latest effort, He Fell Off, it’s clear that the teenage emcee prefers to kick it old school. A new single off his forthcoming mixtape, He Fell Off has a distinct vibe that drips 90’s Golden Era. Maybe it’s because of the visuals, which feature The Astronomical Kid spitting on the streets of New York and in various decrepit buildings, but more than likely it’s because of the emcee’s hard-nosed flow, which he uses to seamlessly rattle off line after line with conviction, despite his tongue-twisting wordplay. Oh, and the ThatLoserLaron production, which features a jabbing drumbeat laced with a jazzy saxophone, probably doesn’t hurt. DeadBeats & Lazy Lyrics is set to drop on February 18, but for more from the rising star feel free to check out November’s Methods.
