Rising Virginia Beach rapper and member of The Keys, Young Malak, delivers this exciting new mixtape titled The Messenger.
The beats are both tantalisingly trippy and gorgeously grimy, over which Young Malak lays some dark and introspective bars. His style feels reminiscent of alt hip hop projects like The Flatbush Zombies and Odd Future, the young rapper delivering his rhymes in a uniquely gruff and moody tone.
Young Malak’s gloomy sound takes inspiration from personal experience with depression. Having overcome his demons, the rapper now uses his music to vent his dark thoughts, turning them into something entertainingly fearsome.
