Astonish who? Just as his Twitter handle and Soundcloud handle suggests, Astonish is a relatively unknown rapper in the Chicago music scene despite his unique brand of hip-hop, but the Detroit-native is looking to change that in 2015. His most recent release and single off his upcoming project To Whom It May Concern, "Get Away," showcases Astonish's distinct brand of hip-hop perfectly.
Astonish paints over the dreamy, tonal canvas produced by Private Stock producer BornReady, who boasts production credits on Saba as well as other notable Chicago rappers, with a crisp flow of tight bars. Astonish also demonstrates his knack for singing lucid, hooks that effectively whisks the listener away to a tranquil state of mind.
Listen to "Get Away" below and you'll understand why Astonish is one of Chicago's best kept kept secrets.
