Liily are at Amoeba Music on Tuesday
As soon as I mentioned that he’s been referred to as “the voice of a generation”, he did a full body cringe. “I don’t know who called me that that could be anyone. Anyone on the internet could say things good or bad. I try not to take the bad too seriously, nor the hyperbolic good.
This new track is heavily lyric-driven, and there’s a lot less focus on the background beats, which helps to accentuate George’s words and voice. It’s just stunning. He starts with, “I’m a phenomenon, and I gotta bring pain in The Octagon. When I wanna spit game at a soccer mom I get it quicker than the left lane in the Autobahn, fast. Like Ramadan, and I battle young padawans all the damn day.”
Get a load of that altitude- what an idiot. Watsky released a statement and can pretty much kiss his mediocre career goodbye unless he has a serious PR firm to do his damage control. A big “Im so sorry I will never do it again” is rather pathetic.
