As nostalgia and old school flows continue to flourish in the underground thanks to groups like Pro Era, it looks like some up-and-comers are finding comfort through similar styles. That is where Astro comes in, a youngster also known as the Astronomical Kid. Taking to beats from MF DOOM, BrandUn De$hay, 9th Wonder, and even three of his own, Astro is able to showcase his swagger-filled, refreshing flow over vintage boom-bap drums. Deadbeats & Lazy Lyrics might be the first time we are hearing about this kid, but it definitely won’t be the last.
