Relentless-, hilarious hip hop notability Mason Way is back with a flamboyant social criticism of social media. The artist in question certainly was a staple amidst these pages in the previous periods - use the TACSF function on the top of the page to look up his stuff - and these days he started to develop a keen sensation towards massively ornamentic soundscapes, now spiced further up via quite relevant vocal - as in singing - components.
The rapping itself has tremendous amounts of charm, as the narrator inherently declares himself as an autonomous individual who allegedly is not affected by the casual-, virtually infinite turmoil pertinent to social media, whereas ironically occupies a position from which all the emotional content he feels towards a certain lady, ARE, in fact, the reflections and results of what he experiences amidst the boundaries of these social media interactions. One of my favorie bits is when he says: "these tactics won't work, bitch, I'm Mason Way." This is the ultimate declaration of independence, or, at least, a valiant attempt at it. Whether this irony is conscious or accidental, is up to the listener to decide, which immeditaley makes this track worthy of serious attention.
