Moscow-based Russian producer Kicktracks and Boston lyricist Virgil recently linked up to create this new hip-hop gem. “Useless Child” combines mesmerising boombap instrumentation with excellent emceeing.
Kicktracks’ emotive melodies balances Virgil’s evocative songwriting and flawless delivery, properly bringing out the song’s theme. “Useless Child” skillfully contrasts artistic expression with mental illness and love with emotional instability.
Besides being socially enlightening, the track introduces us to two talented artists, each of whom needs a bigger platform to express their art.
