Here to keep drill greezy and about as far from the mainstream as you can get, Buni returns with his new single “Gruesome”.
The rapper’s had a busy year so far, dropping off a Mad About Bars freestyle and dropping two collaborations with his brother Russ and South London’s YV on “Reggae & Calypso” and “6am In Dubai”, both of which notched up some pretty insane streaming numbers.
The instrumental for “Gruesome” comes from Sebz Beatz and it’s a tough and bassy number, but for all its low-end what really gives this one weight is the eerie, slightly hypnotic vocal sample that loops throughout the track. Mix that with his in-your-face, in-the-gutter rhymes and you’ve got a timely reminder of what drill is really supposed to look and sound like.
Similarly, the visuals are just as simple and effective, combining shots of Buni and his team performing the track in his kitchen with a montage of scenes from his exhilarating live shows. Charged with charisma and adrenaline in equal measure, all eyes should be on Buni from this point on.
Press play on the visuals above and be sure to add “Gruesome” to your playlists.
