Fan of Tyler The Creator? Well, you’ve got to check this out! Young Malak’s new mixtape ‘The Messenger’ is making waves in the hip hop scene, mixing a grungy vibe with left-field beats and a vivid introspective rapping style. The mixtape was dropped April 21st, and you can see the promo video here.
Lead track ‘The Messenger’ is an emotional track, but not in a melodramatic morbid way, it’s a dark outpouring of emotion sported by some interesting beats. Malak explains the source of his introspective lyrics: ‘One point in my life I was lost stuck trying to figure myself out as well as my self-purpose and the more I searched inside myself I began to overtime breakdown my thoughts and feelings to help me remember me. The more you understand your own self the more you will understand this world, and if you can understand this world you realise everything in the universe is one.
