According to Murphy’s Law, everything that can go wrong sooner or later will. While the jury’s still out on whether that rule holds true, one can point to plenty of evidence in its favor. On a new single, YC the Cynic lives up to his name, offering an abridged history of human f**k-ups from Adam & Eve all the way to our contemporary despoiling of the environment in pursuit of fossil fuels. Not even his own hustle is immune to life’s vagaries and disappointments: “Look at all the bullsh*t I been through / Hope and dreams that got chopped in two.” Frank Drake provides a moody instrumental backdrop for the artist’s bars, and Oliver Eid directs the official visuals. Featuring Murphy’s Law, the reader-approved Runaway and many more fresh cuts, GNK is scheduled for digital release on Monday, August 26.
