Discovery: Imp

Imp is an American old school hip hop MC and producer who has caught my attention through their new collaboration with Only One Ronin and Allen Thomas. It’s called Bug Out Bag.

By Graeme Smith

The track is satire, drawing influence from the YouTube Series What’s In My Bag? and a hypothetical zombie apocalypse. The story is told against a backdrop of jazzy instrumentals and with Imp’s easy flow. The lyrics are as deep as they are sharp, skewering modern ideas of what is “essential.”

Bug Out Bag is taken from Imp’s new concept album Michizure which has been released today. You can check out the single below.
