Do we have a new three-headed snake?
Smino, JID, and Kenny Beats are impactful voices of hip-hop’s new generation. While the current wave typically gets lambasted for degrading rap’s core essence, these three have managed to carry the old school torch into modern times, suggesting a bright future for the genre. Today, these three power players have linked up on the smooth new single, “Baguetti.”
It makes sense why “Baguetti” is such a heater: the two vocalists retain distinct styles unto themselves, while managing to adequately complement each other; Kenny Beats is a superior producer, who revels tailoring production to the featured artist. The result is a truly unique song that will accrue value with each passing listen.
In a musical world of fleeting interest, “Baguetti” is here to course correct.
