I have a difficult time getting into U.K. rappers. I don’t have anything against the British, but something about their accent is grating to my US ears. Despite this I played Danny Seth’s new “$$$: Act 1” and was pleasantly surprised. Even through his thick Watford accent, Seth comes out with his guns blazing. Over Kanye’s “Devil In a New Dress,” Seth dismantles the beat and transitions between a number of flows that demonstrate Seth’s versatility. This was my first introduction to Danny Seth, and hopefully he comes with the same kind of intensity on his debut album, Perception.
Listen to “$$$: Act 1” below.
Also, because we’re late to the show make sure to peep Seth’s standout “The King’s Speech,” below. If this is what it sounds like when “the British are coming,” bring them on.
