Is it really paranoia if everybody is watching you? Well, to answer my own rhetorical question: according to dictionary.com, one’s suspicion of others must be “baseless,” “excessive,” “irrational,” or, “extreme,” to qualify, so I guess not. Booth newcomer Krondon, for one, is perfectly justified in looking over his shoulder for any “Eyes On Me.” One can’t be too careful when walking through the mean streets of Los Angeles—fortunately, this newly-leaked cut finds the up-and-coming rapper flanked by two equally streetwise underground talents. Moonshine‘s tense boardwork, featuring a pensive piano loop and some ghostly background vocals, imbues the track with eerie, foggy ambiance as Krondon, East Coast vet CurT@!n$, and Self Scientific rapper Chace Infinite teach listeners a lesson on the importance of watching one’s back at all times. Packed with hard-hitting underground lyricism, this cut is gritty, real, and undeniably spooky; listeners whose tastes run to the darker end of the hip-hop spectrum will doubtless find more to their liking on Krondon’s Let ‘Em Live LP, which has yet to receive a release date.
