Rising Brisbane emcee I AM D introduces his new EP in emphatic fashion, via blistering track "Seven Deuce".
Remarkably raw and confronting, "Seven Deuce" is a hook-free rampage, D's "Tuscan Leather"-like freestyle flow flipping theology with striking colloquialism ("Brissy winter"), ejecting Lord Finesse shout-outs alongside blunt self-evaluations ("when anxiety had me in ruins") and more straight-shootin' sexual brags. It's a relentless prizefight exhibition, seven rounds of stanzas that jab their way through the looped beat, landing more often that not. The sheer volume of punchlines and unceremonious presentation — more victory lap than swaggering showboating — guarantees the reach for that repeat button.
"Seven Deuce" features on I AM D's new EP, M.N.T.N.S (Mirrors Never Told Nice Stories), due November 4th via the Hilltop Hoods' Golden Era Records imprint.
