Chicago’s Frank Leone returns with a haunting new record called “#CHILDSPLAY,” a powerful lyrical exercise and his latest release en route to his forthcoming project, Enter Wild.
The John Scott-produced cut is fueled by an eerie vocal sample from the 1961 film, The Innocents, and hinges on Leone’s tongue-twisting, appropriately dark in mood rhymes. His flow and delivery are polished – a sure-footed step forward from “LiFE” – and what’s perhaps most intriguing is the fact that he’s very clearly paving a lane for himself in a Chicago scene brimming with rising talent.
Stream below, and stay tuned for more. This one won’t appear on Enter Wild, but expect a selection from the project to arrive in the near future.
