Los Angeles rapper Bones is back with another new mixtape entitled Rotten. Bones is constantly coming out withh new mixtapes at a Gucci Mane-esque pace, each new full-length asserting and evolving his lo-fi, murky aesthetic. His latest, Rotten, is his twelfth full-length in just two years and while the music appears to remain the same outside of a few tweaks and twists, his style and sound have yet to grow tired. If anything — judging by the SoundCloud listens amassed in just 48 hours — the demand for anything Bones-related is becoming higher and higher.
On Rotten, Bones’ baritone graveyard growl continues to sound submerged in a benzo-and-opiate-induced state, though he is experimenting more and more with slumped, hazy AutoTune-coated melodies similar to Chief Keef’s past syrup-supplemented experiments. As always, acoustic numbers and songs that sort of sound like 90’s pop-punk balladry are included to mix it up a bit, and Bones’ list of producers pretty much remains the same. The project runs 17 tracks, but much of the song-lengths are kept relatively short. You can check out Rotten below.
