Detroit Rapper Comic makes his SpitFireHipHop debut with “Old Rapper.”
This song is real Hip Hop. Bars, flows, a concept, and a beat so dirty that it could fit on any modern Boom Bap playlist, even without lyrics. The producer, Grimey Chops looped an eerie sample with vintage horns and a drum-kit that basically rearranged my entire face when I heard it drop. His lyrical style is witty, imaginative, and pretty tasteless….just the way he likes his art.
The whole concept of the artist stage name Comic is to encapsulate the personality of a typical comedian: funny, offensive, and secretly tortured. “Old Rapper” is the perfect summary of all of this.
Comic’s plan for the song’s release is to start a Tik Tok challenge where rappers ages 30+ will duet their verse after the chorus – “I’m an old rapper, getting new bucks.” At the very least, the catchiness of the hook will resonate with young and old Hip Hop music fans that it will be lodged into their brains.
This is the first Comic and Grimey Chops collaboration and there’s a great chance it won’t be the last.
