The West Ghost dropped his four-track EP, Son of Sorrow, in February.
While the up-and-comer switches up his flow often, the rhymes aren’t always up to par. Although the beats are stellar. In a press release, The West Ghost said he’s working on mixing lyricism and “catchiness.”
“In rap there’s an obvious tradeoff between lyrical integrity and catchiness, and obviously trends move toward catchiness. There have been those that spoke from the heart like Immortal Technique and countless others who no one really listens to, and my goal is diminish that effect as much as possible. My goal is to marry substantive (though sometimes subtle by necessity) messages and cohesive flows in an effort to make reason cool again,” he said.
As he works on that, his EP is definitely one to check out. We’ll certainly be checking up on what he has in store in the future.
