When the tracklist was announced for Higher Brothers’ new album Five Stars, even those unfamiliar with the Chinese rap group were impressed with what they had gathered. As part of 88rising, Higher Brothers have become the most visible musical representatives of their home country in the United States, linking with top producers and buzzing artists to unleash a solid effort. One of the standout tracks from Five Stars is the newest single “One Punch Man” with Ski Mask the Slump God and Denzel Curry.
It’s refreshing to hear Denzel Curry spitting again after TA13OO and as always, Ski Mask does his thing, painting an image with his grimy lyrics and flows. Some may expect Higher Brothers to be the weak link here but that’s just not true in this case. The group stands tall with their star features to deliver one hell of a song. What are your thoughts on this collaboration?
5 to your face like I’m Abraham Lincoln
I leave a hole that’s the size of a penny
When I catch that they gon’ say that it’s Denny
Pay off the winners they say I’m at Denny’s
Call me Goku
I play the numbers just like Sudoku
