LP: BLACK KRAY – GOTH LUV

A few months back I detailed how I thought Black Kray was next to bring some fresh ideas into the rap genre, and now he’s released his first full-length project.  GOTH LUV is definitely what I hoped it would be.  Kray has laid claim to a bunch of spaced out and melodic beats from across the depths of Soundcloud, and rapped over them in his own unique but infectious way.  Kray’s flow isn’t intricate, and his lyrics aren’t put together with wordplay, but work perfectly for the beats.  Kray’s rhythmic verses make it feel like the entire song is one long hook, and his lyrics colorfully accomplish his goal of telling “hood fairy tales”.  Stream two of my favorite songs from the album below, and stream the whole thing and buy it after the jump so that Black Kray can afford more Gucci teks.
