When Baatin (Missin U…), the new mixtape leak from Jack Splash, starts off with a strange, raspy voice singing “I’m missing you,” it may leave you wondering what type of song this is, but as Splash starts to rap, you realize the weirdness is intentional. Comparing himself to Kid Cudi and Kanye West, he outlines his own journey through the rap world and pays homage to the work of former Slim Village member Baatin, who passed away in August. On the track Splash is emotional, spitting likes like, “If love is insane you can call me crazy,” and by the end of Missin U we’ve come full circle with the same voice echoing, “I’m missing you.” Just as impressive is the ending of the song, which is a near minute-long instrumental showcasing Splash’s skills as a budding producer. Missin U is the first leak off the DJ Skee and The Smoking Section-presented Heir To The Throne (Vol. 1) Mixtape, out later this month.
