Habitual line-steppers The Black Opera are quite the contrarians. “KOON SH!T” is an ExperiMix, as they call it, that’s clearly a dig at the #newrules. But, their verbal darts aren’t just limited to top tier and mindless mainstream gropus as they explain “You lyrical miracle spiritual n*ggas can get it too cause we ain’t hearing you neither.”
Is The Black Opera to be taken seriously or just a gimmicky character play? They’re not just out here doing shit, word to DMX. So how about we consider them to be a mix of both since there’s an overall sense of balance that TBO brings, perhaps a self-criticism of their colleagues, the music produced and the buying public. And it’s all supported by skill.
As a voice towards the end of the track frames it, The Black Opera’s setting themselves up to be the “dumbest smart n*ggas” in rap right now. That’s a positive in my book.
