Chicago emcee Murph Watkins will be the first to tell you that there is a lot he doesn’t know, but one thing he does know is how to make a great, socially aware song. This is evident from his pensive cut I Don’t Know(The Massage), a standout selection from his EP, The Plague. Producer The Antydote, who handles all the production on the project, crafts a low-key, chime-laced beat for Watkins, who proceeds to pontificate on the errs of society as well as his own shortcomings with a confident, genuine flow. The emcee knows more than he gives himself credit for, proposing a few thoughtful solutions to the problems he discusses. For more thought producing powerful tracks check out The Plague, out now.
