LOST MY MIND, FOUND GOD IN THE MOSHPIT.
This is the refrain that anchors CRASHprez’s newest song “Watch This”, an energetic rowdy banger. The beat is provided by Boathouse who brought the bass, the sub looms over the lyrics like a dark cloud and the kick hits with the intensity of someone breaking down a door. Student 1 leads off the first verse, mentioning his propensity for smoking and writing by mentioning the “Notebook and Buddha” in his Jansport bag. CRASHprez takes the song in another direction mentioning his roots (“Black man from suburbia!”) and how his self love unnerves jealous onlookers (“Flexin’ all my melanin, I noticed it’s unnervin’ ya!”).
Overall “Watch This” is a confident song perfect for a good old fashion college house party. The chemistry of Student 1 and CRASHprez creates a stylistic symmetry that makes me want to hear more from the pairing.
