Young St Petersburg emcee Chester Watson is a rapper who's been making waves for well over a year now. Between himself and the rest of the Nu Age Syndicate, they have released some of the strongest pieces of underground work to grace these pages at EARMILK, and has even seen his music played by major radio personalities, including Radio 1's Zane Lowe. His last project, Tin Wookie, saw the talented rapper elevate even more, delivering some of his finest work to date, and cementing his status as one to keep an eye on.
It's been a couple of month since Watson dropped Tin Wookie, and now the Florida-residing MC is back with new music for us to digest; this time it's him showcasing his beat crafting skills with his new project Guru Vol.3. As the name suggests, this is the third installment in the Guru series, where we get to see how Chester makes the transition from talented rapper to master on the boards. One of the standout tracks on this beat tape is "Madness", which sees Watson serve us with a fresh slice of disjointed goodness, as his lethargic drum patterns collide over the top of some crazy sounding samples that carry this track on it's sluggish sounding path. This joint definitely feels like something the likes of Earl Sweatshirt would spit over, and something that sits well in Chester's repertoire.
You can stream "Madness" below, and the entire Guru Vol.3 project is available to stream and buy over on Chester's bandcamp, hit up the link below to check it out!
