I skipped around through several tracks. I just heard 90s style hip hop. I didn't hear any sound collages.
I honestly think there’s a misunderstanding here somewhere.
There are only fleeting rap flows on the album, and few that last more than a few seconds. It’s all over the place. I think one of the last things I would associate it with is ‘90s hip-hop — like, Wu-Tang? Tupac? Tribe? — because none of it sounds anything like that to me.
It’s a bit like Death Grips meets Aphex Twin’s compositional habits circa “Ventolin” remixes, with a little R&B and boyband-type shit tossed in at random intervals and an awful lot of just disparate sounds chucked in here and there.
I mean honestly it’s an interesting listen. This is a guy who named a song after voting for Donald Trump after all, and he’s a massive troll, but sonically it’s pure insanity. The fact that it’s immensely popular is ... either incredible or suspect, I can’t quite decide which.
Veteran is more straight forward, and better as an album, but even that record sounds nothing like ‘90s hip-hop to me. *shrug*
