People say lightning doesn’t strike twice. Well, they clearly haven’t met The Unusuals—a daredevil duo that makes all your perceived ‘favorite’ rappers look like bad jokes. They transcend the word average in every possible way, personifying hip-hop and rap and giving you everything you have come to revere about the genre. Inside them lie voices, rhymes, and cadences of many colors. And guess what? They aren’t afraid to showcase their talents to anyone willing to listen. Starting today, forget about any rap artist claiming OG status; it doesn’t fit them as it does The Unusuals—the true OGs of the rap game.
They return with a raw, arguably timeless masterpiece dubbed “Sweet Potatoes” with lyrics that explore humans’ misguided feelings of inadequacy, especially when it comes to material things…the perpetual feeling that others possess more than we do, often overshadowing our appreciation for what we have. Here, The Unusuals take you on a journey—a rollercoaster one that, once it takes you higher up and the adrenaline is over the roof, reminds you of the joy and satisfaction of simpler moments!
