What if video game characters had to navigate through the REAL world? They’d be disappointed that there were no treasure chests with extra coins or re-up packs for energy. But they would find QuEST, the Miami-emcee and DJBooth Freestyle alum who takes a verbal trip inside “the game” with his new record Inner Sense. The beat conqueror reveals himself as a master lyricist over an M&D production which sounds as if Zelda went insane at a drumline audition. As he flows steady and paces the track with unpredicted spurts of quickness, QuEST challenges every player to look at their interactive level: “Go go going on/don’t you know whats going on?/ they gonna crush your innocence so you can’t find your inner sense.” Only real gamers speak like that, and QuEST makes this one a must-listen. Although Inner Sense didn’t make the cut, The Reason: A Defense Mechanism is set for release in November. Good thing it’s releasing digitally and not on a gold cartridge - that would blow.
