Bloodmoney (@DrBloodmoney) is a rapper/producer from Portland, Oregon, who has made a few appearances here at CB, such as the last EP I spoke about, his charity compilation We’re Really Out Here. Last month, he released with a new EP, though, titled The Art of Self Destruction, produced entirely by Chicago-based producer Morbidly-O-Beats.
Comprised of 8 tracks, the album is propelled by heavy industrial beats made up of deep, reverberating bass lines, thick distorted drums, eerie effects and samples, and grim piano notes. Bloodmoney‘s lyricism is usually the intelligent type, which pushes the listener to really decipher and absorb what’s being said–I personally enjoy that type of music. The subject matter lies within futuristic paranoia and social commentary on relatable forefront issues, such as social networking, politics, self-destruction, and such. The one and only guest feature comes from Uncommon Nasa on “Metal Arms”.
