In today’s fickle music game, artists are frequently hyped to massive proportions before abruptly falling off the radar. The industry, media and consumers alike could all use a healthy dose of Perspective—which is exactly what Until the Ribbon Breaks delivers on his latest single. Part of the Republic Records signee’s forthcoming EP, this cut finds the headliner dispensing oblique, robotic-voiced pearls of wisdom over his own ultra-chill electronic boardwork (featuring a vocal sample from Nas‘s Made you Look). Needless to say, NYC underground phenom Homeboy Sandman‘s cryptic, left-of-center rhyme style fits in perfectly with the cut’s eclectic vibe. An unknown director provides the offical video, featuring some dope old-school special effects. For more, check out A Taste of Silver, available now in stores and online.
