An artist who titles a record “F**kin’ Awesome” runs the risk of shame and embarrassment if the contents don’t match the label; thus, it was with temerity that I clicked “Play” on Johnny Polygon‘s latest offering. “Will F**kin Awesome actually be,” I asked myself, “ f**kin’ awesome?” Fortunately, I think readers will join me in answering that question with a hearty, “Abso-f**kin’-lutely!” This standout EP cut finds Polygon showcasing a smoother style than on his previous features. Over The Soundmen‘s airy synth boardwork, the emcee pays tribute to the joys of no-strings-attached action, telling one of his many chicks, “You’re not my only one, but maybe you’re my favorite.” While his nonchalance about loving and leaving ‘em may have self-proclaimed “nice guys” shaking their heads in disapproval, it’s hard to hold it against him when he describes his romantic exploits in such an entertaining manner – and if his rhymes don’t win you over, his surprisingly silky sung chorus will likely do the trick. Fans can find F**kin’ Awesome and much more on the Booth-sponsored Wolf in Cheap Clothing EP, available here for free streaming and download.
