I’ve been a fan of pretty much everything I’ve ever heard from The Kickdrums. The production duo keeps their hot streak going by providing an album’s worth of beats for emcee Verbal filled with live instrumentation blended with choice samples. Together, they form Idiot Savant. Verbal’s voice was the only thing I wasn’t sure about at first, but by the end of the album I was digging it. He holds his own by coming with some fun, clever, and sometimes personal lyrics and not sounding like every other asshole who decided to become a rapper. Check out a track below and if you like it, get the whole album.
