Ottawa trio Training Season (GPxTempest, King Caexar, Queen) enlists Chi-Town force-to-be-reckoned-with Mick Jenkins on this hazy voyage. Reverberated synths and violent drums channel something off the It Follows soundtrack, providing the emcees with a dark, cold canvas. The end result is a track that's lyrical as hell, with each rapper going off on lengthy verses ripe with wordplay and wide-ranging subject matter before Queen rounds things off with a haunting hook.
Training Season prove capable of holding their own on a track with Jenkins, and we look forward to hearing more from the Canadian crew. Look for their upcoming album, The Caexar Saga: L Man, dropping later this year.
Run a mile through unfortunate events like Lemony Snicket
Vomit, bulimics think I'm pushing the limits
Depleted after some minutes, beat it, the pussy afflicted
With spirits, speaking in tongues, impeded speeches dyslexic
Wave is buzzing like crickets, cicadas, season is wicked
Verses stretch like pilates, niggas pay Hades a visit
