PARLAY WOP - GREASEBALL / DRONE
Greaseball, genius sad clown of Riverside and my favorite Inland-originated MC, is back with a new moving music video documenting his new life with the young artists of Cookie World productions and their surrounding orbit.
As someone who has had some a melancholy year or 5 chasing the communal highs of countercultural friend-groups, this video spoke to me deeply. The song itself is stream of consciousness ramblings from Greaseball in sing-songy rap form over a pleasing and heartstring tugging melodic piano drum loop, I dig it a lot and this marriage of rap and melody is definitely where Grease seems to be at lately.
