It has almost been a year since we got something new from Kyle Rapps on TWIB but that has changed with the release of his lead single titled “Fiction“. The song is pretty experimental and a far cry from what you may expect if you compare it to his older stuff. The off kilter sound blends boom-bap snapping drums, distorted basslines and chant like vocal samples which all play second fiddle to his deep baritone delivery and left field lyrics.
“Fiction,” serves as the first leak off his forthcoming self-produced project, Perverse Ramblings.
But there’s more to “Fiction” than its regaling of tales of dirty deeds. As entertaining as those portions of the track may be, it also boasts clever references to classic shows like Perfect Strangers and Seinfeld amidst reflections on dreams of playing in the NHL. Above all else, this is the first time that Rapps has done more than, well, rap on his own track. He produced the entirety of “Fiction,” which boasts snarling synthesizers and ill percussion—a combination he’s slayed in the past but not one he’s done on his own.
“Fiction” is now available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms, and can be downloaded au-gratis, courtesy of HYPEDDIT.
