New Jersey's Crimeapple has a new collaborative album coming out, and we can currently check out a new single from it. "In Flight" certainly doesn't sound like most hip hop released in 2022, but it doesn't sound like a pure throwback, either. The track features Crimeapple's flow over an instrumental piano sample. The beats seem to mostly stay in the background and aren't very noticeable. When was the last time you could say that about a hip hop track? It has an old school feel, mostly because of the focus on Crimeapple's vocals. Even his singing for a chorus feels classic. "In Flight" feels like vintage hip hop while still pushing boundaries.
You can listen to "In Flight" below. Breakfast in Hradec is due out June 29 on Different Worlds Music Group, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Crimeapple, check out the artist on Twitter. DJ Skizz can be found on Twitter here.
