Donald Trump may have only been inaugurated today, but OnlyOne wastes no time jumping on some Smoke M2D6 instrumentation to kick his political lyrics. From police brutality, to our current political system, to racial discrimination, Only tackles it all on his latest cut. He sounds upset, he sounds angry, and best of all, he sounds incredibly comfortable on Smoke’s rough, guitar-led instrumental. He’s not compromising his style or his flow to conform to the beat, which makes this one of his strongest singles in years. OnlyOne and Smoke M2D6 are currently working on an album together, and if it sounds anything like this, Sandpeople fans should expect something amazing.
