17-year-old Rochester, NY hip-hop artist Slump6s has unleashed his new single, “Own It” today via Field Trip Recordings/Republic Records. The track arrives alongside an energetic music video, which can be seen now below.
The track’s unpredictable production brushes up against his manic vocal delivery. He flips like a switchblade between breathless heart-pounding verses, guttural baritone, and woozy melodies evocative of his dynamic sonic scope. In the accompanying visual, Slump6s turns up in a mansion before otherworldly madness ensues as skeletons in hoodies take over the staircase and psychedelic dissolves find him in a dark dreamscape.
Last year, Slump6s made waves with his Origin mixtape, generating millions of streams. The title track and single “Origin” received widespread acclaim. Our Generation Music hailed the rapper as “impossible to ignore with his marathon of fast-paced, melodic singles” and added, “Slump has set himself apart from the crowd with his consistency and futuristic sound.”Origin also includes “Moment,” which Elevator Magazine highlighted the rapper as “part of the new generation of soundcloud rappers who are taking the internet by storm.”
