Blaqstarr Is Still Making the Weirdest R&B (New Track)

March 6, 2012

Blaqstarr dropped a new track yesterday (via his label Interscope) and there’s nothing Baltimore club about it. Which isn’t a big surprise; dude’s been onto something more for a while, even when you could properly call him a club producer. This is like a new strain of anti-R&B—lo-fi backgroundy production, a kind of “just there” beat, a sampled chorus and refrains, a rap you could almost miss. Blaqstarr’s moved onto big labels and big things, but so far doesn’t seem to have sold his soul a bit.
