While Chandler London made an appearance on Netherfriends’ New CHI-t recently, it’s been awhile since we’ve had a solo drop from the Science of Sleep rapper. Chandler’s simply kept his head down in order to get everything straightened away for his next mixtape, Requiem for a Dream. However, he hit us up with some new new to remind everybody what he’s capable of.
“TheDrug3.3” features Chandler rapping on Theophilus London’s “The Drug,” remixed and reproduced by OH!Quinn. Don’t be fooled by the song’s optimistic-sounding beat; Chandler is still just as self-reflective in “TheDrug3.3” as he was in the majority of the songs off of The Science of Sleep. Most rappers like to flex on others or build their bravado up; Chandler, on the other hand, would rather be open and honest in his music, even if that honesty might not portray him in the best light.
Considering the themes and content in Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream, which analyzed various forms of addiction, Chandler’s Requiem for a Dream should be just as dark in tone. In saying that, “TheDrug3.3” serves as an upbeat song to bring you up before the onslaught of Requiem songs drop to take you to your dark place. Get ready, because 2013 will be Chandler London’s year.
