thebe kgositsile's relaxed yet charismatic drawl & weird imagination makes a compelling vocal presence over the mash up of futuristic beats & more old school joints.
following his 2010 debut mixtape, 'earl', & a period of time spent at a boarding school in samoa, 'doris' is kgositsile's 1st album to be released through his own tan cressida imprint. with vocal contributions from tyler the creator, frank ocean & domo genesis, plus productions from rza, the neptunes & more - the album perfectly blends classic hip-hop notions of groove & genre-hopping with the dark (or dumb) humour & apathetic world view of other members of the extended odd future family. highlights include the self-analysis & wonky fusion beats of 'burgundy', the menacing, creeping beats of 'hive' & tyler's warped verse on 'whoa'.
leo recommends : "Odd Future’s most talented rapper delivers an addictive debut, his laid-back & blunted, deeply imaginative flow concocting vivid bars of strangely swaggering & often self-deprecating rhymes".
