Formerly A$AP Rocky’s in-house designer, Dominic Lord, is now ready to show the world his rapping skills. Thank god he has, as his new song, “Old English” is utterly fantastic. Over a broken down Purity Ring-style beat, the 18 year old deceptively lays down some heartbreaking lines. While the background bird chirps might give you a feeling of a safe environment, Lord paints a darker picture full of unwanted bullets in the neighborhood. He pleas over and over for the gunplay to stop, and the imagery that arises is a bitter reality.
We’re hoping his upcoming EP, Fashion Show, (out on September 7th) has plenty more of this incredible quality.
