Mind-boggling fast verses meet some pretty hardcore metaphors in the latest track released by local rapper Il-Lapes.
Lamenting the lack of genuine feeling in songs (and society) today, Mela Tlaqna sees Agius (the rapper) power through some of the fastest lines ever heard on a Maltese song, and in his own words, he doesn’t cut any corners.
Rapping on the local scene for the past seven years, Il-Lapes gained a significant following through his work with groups like No Bling Show and Marmalja.
The video posted to YouTube yesterday has amassed just over 2,000 views, but to all those who listen and enjoyed the new track, that number is scarily low.
While some of the lyrics may make an audience a feel uneasy (at least the ones they can keep up with anyway), there’s a certain excitement that comes with hearing a song that’s not afraid to push buttons as it powers through to ‘catchy chorus’.
