Oh, man. Last time I stood here promoting Sam Adams, I wound up getting knocked out by a kitchen sink. A year and some change later, I may not have completely regained consciousness, because I’m right back on my soap box, speaking on his latest single, “Blow Up.”
After making a few bold proclamations about, “Driving Me Crazy,” the last track Sam had bubbling, this record reinforces my belief that dude still has success ahead of him. Riding a J.O.B. and MadV beat that swipes The Pixies addition to the Fight Club OST, this pale ale MC can lyrically be found attempting to prove naysayers wrong and wondering why his time has yet to come. And, while the song has an almost identical to hook to Pill’s duet with Iyaz of the same name, Sam’s take has a much more cover-all sound, but still carries all the cliches of a successful rap record in today’s market.
With that said, if the song title doesn’t come to fruition for Sammy, he’s still gonna’ have to find a way to break me off some cash for my medical bills, because I definitely won’t make it out of the comment section alive.
