DJ Low Cut – “2 Chains” (ft Akin Yai)
DJ Low Cut has a song with Akin Yai, called “2 Chains”, that was featured on the 7th Banzai Lab compilation earlier this month. DJ Low Cut created a boom bap, piano-driven beat that has a fun little melody, and it sounds like it could be a hip hop theme song to a children’s game or sing-a-long educational song. The latter suits Akin Yai‘s deep lyrical content of this song, which is juxtaposed with a playful, lighthearted delivery. “Grab your kids, grab your children, here’s a story,” begins Akin Yai, as he raps about two perspectives of chains–the chains that restrained humans in the transatlantic slave ships and the infatuation with chains in hip hop.
The compilation is available to download for free, as is the song (+ the instrumental) over on DJ Low Cut’s Bandcamp. Give it a listen below.
