“Dat New New” is a Kid Cudi song from 2008 and “That New New” is a weekly feature where we, The Rub, tell you about new music we rate.
The Migos – Walk It Talk It (ft. Drake)
Migos have a new album called Culture II which is about four hours too long but there are a good handful of diamonds in that rough, especially the songs with features. 21 Savage, Cardi B, 2 Chainz and Drake all bring an element of surprise to what is otherwise a fairly unremarkable project from the hugely influential Atlanta trio.
Okay Kaya – IUD
Here’s what you need to know: Okay Kaya is from Norway, this beat is like a slow wave syrup rolling onto a tropical beach, and the lyrics are about going to the clinic with her boyfriend to get a birth control implant. Fun story: my Swedish friend pronounces “Planned Parenthood” as “Planet Parenthood,” which sounds like an infinitely more cheerful place. Which is as good a place as any to transition to the Young Fathers.
Young Fathers – In My View
Brent Tactic sent this one over and we were not up on Young Fathers, who sound a little like TuneYards – bespoke, distorted beats and more or less traditional indie vocals. It works though!
