Though it seems like meeting the deceased would be no difficult task for a man with a Time Machine (just hop in and set the dial back a few years, right?), newly-leaked LP cut I See Dead People finds Termanology communing with the departed in a more traditional manner: taking a stroll through the local cemetery, bottle of Hennessey in tow. Backed by The Alchemist‘s narcotically dreamy synth boardwork, the emcee indulges his morbid streak, spitting vivid, emotionless accounts of each graveyard resident’s demise. The message? Everybody, from poverty-stricken victims of circumstance to the wealthiest, most powerful elites, ends up in the same position: in a wooden box, six feet underground (or on top of someone’s mantel in a little urn, as the case may be). It’s a definite downer, but I’m guessing that’s what Term was going for—and, in any case, the skill with which he carries the track’s concept from start to finish is undeniably impressive. If Term’s dark lyrical ponderings have you hooked, grab a copy of Time Machine (Hood Politics VI), set to hit stores September 22nd.
