When fans hit play on QuEST‘s latest single, they might be a little shocked to hear the normally down-to-earth Jersey emcee announce that he’s strapped. He anticipated this confusion, and released the song with a little disclaimer: “In this song, I am portraying a character that existed in real life. In no way do I condone violence of any kind, nor do I encourage violent behavior.” Real or fictional, though, the grimy bars the Visionary Music Group rhymesayer delivers over 6ix‘s eerie piano-loop production are undeniably compelling, and the Forgot About Dre-inspired hook is icing on the cake. Featuring this cut, previous single Automatic and much more, Searching Sylvan is due out on September 2. As always, though, fans can keep it locked for the latest.
