Willie The Kid grew up in the wrong era. His ability to describe life’s finer things in photorealistic detail would have fallen right into place during the reign of Raekwon, Ghostface, and Nas.
Not that his flow on “Medusa” is dated. Willie and guests Action Bronson and Roc Marciano give updated versions of the stream of consciousness mastery displayed by the aforementioned trio. Alchemist’s string heavy production provides a lush backdrop for the fly goings on in the life of The Kid.
WTK’s Masterpiece Theatre will drop July 23.
