Blueprint has always been a master of storytelling raps – listen to Scared w/ Jake One – so when I heard that he had released a mini murder mystery in hip hop form, I was understandably hyped. Taken from his forthcoming Vigilante Genesis EP, which is produced in full by his friend and frequent collaborator Aesop Rock, Graffiti Writer Killed is a lyrical masterclass in building suspense. I won’t spoil anything, just press play and enjoy the story. Watch out for more news on the EP soon.
