Animuse: “Don’t Go” (feat. Auggie the 9th and Blakkass Westley)

Caution: If you listen to this new Animuse cut, you might find yourself replaying the song over and over, so set your schedule accordingly. As Animuse slowly makes their way back into the scene (hinted at last month with Savier’s Dead Weight Beat Tape 3 drop), they’re dropping quality tracks here and there leading up to the September 17th release of TheLucyList, a mixtape/collection of loosies. Assumedly, “Don’t Go” will also be a part of the collection.

Both Savier and Elishua teamed up with my best friend Auggie the 9th and second best friend Blakkass Westley for the ironically named song, considering how the song does, in fact, go, and goes hard at that. Whether it’s Elishua and Savier’s patented verse trade-offs, Auggie’s street punk-inspired, high-energy screech, or Westley’s unorthodox rhyme scheme, the four ensure that each listener won’t be able to listen to the song just once.

Check out the song below, look forward to TheLucyList next month, as well as Animuse’s next full-length, TRANSPIRE, later this year. (Side note: Props to Auggie for the Romeo and Juliet verse.)
