A dense, in-depth cut from an exciting up and comer.
Jalopy Bungus has been on the grind for years, with projects like Home and 2 Thingz 4 Certain taking his local buzz to the internet, showing hip-hop fans worldwide that this kid, truly has the potential to be the next big thing. “No Promises” is the next step in the journey to that stardom coming to fruition.
“No Promises” is short but dense, with everything from references to the Israelites to commentary on societal problems and discrimination. The beat, courtesy of Crust, is minimalist, with a vintage snare, deep sub bass and eerie synth propelling the messages conveyed. Jalopy’s flow is concise and straight to the point, with the pronunciation of every word being as important of the bounce of the beat. But overall, this merely feels like a tease towards Jalopy’s next full-length album SAMSON; the project where everything blows up.
Watch the video for “No Promises” below, and look out for SAMSON, which is slated to drop the 22nd of February.
