After five reader-approved features from Drique London, you might think you’re an expert on the North Carolina repper. Well, think again. On his latest mixtape single, he reminds the listener just how much “You Don’t Know” about him. Reticent as the unsigned spitter may be in the face of a presumptuous public, a number of intriguing details can be gleaned from the fast-paced bars London delivers here. Over The Candidates’ hazy samples and hi-hat rolls, he spits about his frustration with being slept on, his use of music as a coping mechanism (“Writin’ the only way I know how to vent.”) and other topics that have been on his mind. For more insights into Drique’s psyche, cop his latest LP, Sounds of the Rising Sun, when it drops digitally this fall.
