The ‘Handshake Vs. Dap’ producer and music master Count Bass D just released his new video and single for ‘Instantly New’ – the first new rap track from Count in five years, and boy was he missed.
His classic stream-of-consciousness flow creeps along the chill beat with huge real-deal ideas that hit the mind just right. The lines don’t resolve themselves, but give the feeling of an intimate conversation. Here are 5 that you just have to sit and meditate on. Read along, and press play on Instantly New.
- Am I hallucinating or being creative? / Regardless my perception remains distorted and I don’t trust your opinion in my world view.
- I’ve created rules based on experience that provide a relatively consistent environment.
- Music maintains and triggers my motivation.
- I was the Tesla/ She the Edison.
- That contrarian spirit that keeps you divided with yourself/unable to take a stand.
