Los Angeles rapper Blast is coming for the top. His poignant flow is crisp as can be on his newest single "Headshots." On the track, he raps with an error-free determination as he spits quickly over opera-sampled and drum-loaded production. The song's meaning doesn't get lost while he raps his ass off; it deals with his devotion to making it in hip-hop and an unbreakable desire for success. The music video sees Blast in a dark room, rapping to the camera with a sincerity and aggression that end up pairing well together. Hit play below:
Blast has been making music since 2010, largely as the duo King & Blast. After four projects, he released his first solo single in 2016 titled, "Who Would've Thought." That track now has over a million Spotify plays, and Blast has since worked with a variety of acts, namely producing for Eric Bellinger on his "By Now" track from Bellinger's Eazy Call album. If "Headshots" is any indication, Blast is only getting better as he hones in on his awe-inspiring sound.
