THINKING FACE EMOJI AKA THE MEME TAPE BY THE THOUGHT
The Thought is a thoroughly entertaining blend of contradictions. He’s nerdy with swagger, he’s funny and dark. He raps and he sings. He’s a loner with friends.
This nerdcore adjacent tape of meme-themed endeavors, many of which are collabs with dope cats like Zen Stokely and Smith the Poet, is brilliant and well-executed. I have to admit this Baby Yoda track is a standout and the best attempt at a Baby Yoda song I’ve heard yet. Dare I say it reminds me of “Fett’s Vette”. This album might be the album I thought his last one was going to be because such it’s such a smart and musical expression of his idiosyncratic persona and talented set of lungs. It tackles a lot of different topics, expresses his simultaneous disdain for and fascination with pop culture, and is hella polished in its sound. This cat is becoming unrelenting, you’re gonna have to give him his props now.
