At this year’s SXSW, I saw Chicago up-and-comer ShowYouSuck perform live for the first time, and like so many others, I was blown away. He shut down the Red Bull Soundstage and won over dozens of new fans with his through the roof energy, and most importantly, he had the quality music to back it up.
This Tuesday, the Closed Sessions signee is releasing his upcoming mixtape, #OMMP4: Slice After Death, via Mishka. This new track entitled “Flip Phone,” produced by the well-respected beatsmith Thelonious Martin, is a smooth summertime record about a girl from his past with a “ratchet ass flip phone.”
Show begins the starts the track with the brief warning: “If you think this song’s about you, then you need to get a new phone.” Then the Thelonious beat drops in, and the nostalgic vibe is suddenly on 100. “Flip Phone” is a laid back song with a sun-dried feel, and I can only hope these two collaborate to make more music like this in the near future.
Stay tuned for more. Download #OMFF4 on July 23rd.
