In the struggle of conscious life, questions of our own beingness outside of the now, momentary memories, yesterday’s recollections (reflected back in the current), congregated together for us to contemplate… the ‘why’ of everything; the full cognizance of existence. ‘Hard to tell the difference between the hero & the villain, when the snake offers fruit, & your God has gone missing’, Kilik avers – admonition as to the depth of our struggles whilst here on this Mother Earth.
‘Mountaintop’ is a multi-layered creation, with each spin offering a new form for an intent listener to contemplate. Featuring an easy head-nod of a post-boom-bap beat, rhymes run over rhythms with the ease of great wings on a swift wind; beating, gliding, soaring across the landscape, overlooking the extraordinary expanse. Seldom do MCs manage to reach such immense heights in flow, cadence, tone, & content simultaneously – this is a true feat of artistic expression. For the fans of righteous hip hop, Kilik is one to watch; hear more here:
