Yo OTDHipHop fam! Welcome back to another week of DOPE content here in our blog, and don’t forget to follow us on ALL of our social media. This week’s #TrackTuesday features an artist we’ve never had officially on OTDHipHop before, and that is hip hop artist/emcee, Pak!
I ran into him at a studio rehearsal this past Friday night and we chopped it up about his new project and fundraising campaign. Check out my review of his new song “Wanna,” from his newly released project,I Will Not Be Chain3d.
Pak has a really unique sound and demeanor as an emcee. Off rip, most might say he’s a “nerd” rapper but if you watch him closely at live shows and get to see his musical and visual content; he’s a lot more than that! “Wanna” is a good introduction to his persona and vibe. This is probably the most explicit from I Will Not Be Chain3d, but nonetheless I think it’s dope. The beat is produced by Syndrome and is a banger in itself, but I really like the sound effects on Pak’s flow and voice. It has a trap and EDM vibe that keeps me intrigued as a listener. Lyrically, Pak talks about the “come up” and all the things he desires; but there’s a maturity in his flow that mentions things like family, relationships, and mental and emotional stability. I’d love to hear this live!
