Kirby Forest - "Acid Jazz"

I've always found it odd that I gravitate so strongly to British hip hop when most American hip hop doesn't interest me any more. Maybe since it's because many British rappers skip the whole verse/R&B chorus/verse format that has plagued US hip hop for 25+ years. My latest discovery/obsession is London's Kirby Forest. His new single, "Acid Jazz," isn't entirely pleasant. The main sample used is a little off kilter and almost disturbing. But music, especially hip hop, shouldn't always be nice. It's a laid back song that dabbles in trippy at times. That being said, it's definitely not as weird as I'm making it sound. It's a great, solid hip hop song perfect for those of us who just don't get most modern hip hop but like to hear something that isn't 20 or more years old every so often.
