If just about any other rapper released a song titled LIMOSEXSUPERSTAR, you’d know exactly what to expect: a dope, hedonistic, but ultimately disposable jam celebrating the perks of fame and fortune. You can count on the cynically perceptive Johnny Polygon, however, to show you the dark cloud behind every silver lining. The latest single off the Oklahoma repper’s forthcoming, long-delayed studio debut, this moody jam finds Polygon highlighting the ennui and numbness that all-too-frequently accompany celebrity. Over The Argonauts’ chilly arpeggiated-synth production, he vividly depicts a life dominated by “cocaine and amnesia,” switching between his trademark deadpan flows and surprisingly smooth sung bars. The moral of the story? “The loneliest place in the world’s the center of the universe.” While Polygon’s debut set, the hilariously-titled P*ssy Gun, has yet to receive a solid drop date, we’ll be sure to keep you supplied with all the latest news and tunes leading up to its release. In the meantime, you can still stream and download the emcee’s last project, the Wolf in Cheap Clothing EP, for free in The DJBooth.
