Introduced to the Booth earlier this month via the reader-apcclaimed Black Avocado, OVEOUS’ returns to our pages with another fruit-related banger for your aural delectation. (Yes, the avocado is technically a fruit—I had to look it up, too.) With that said, Platano Ni-Ge-Re isn’t actually about food; the titular snack is a metaphor for the artist’s Afro-Latino and Caribbean roots, which he proudly touts in his bawdy, braggadocious verses. In addition to rocking the mic, OVEOUS produces the syncopated-synth beat and directs the joint’s official video. For more from this multi-talented up-and-comer, purchase a digital copy of the deluxe version of his Kill Your Myth LP, available at iTunes as of May 7.
