I remember a time when the words “rolling in the deep” made me want to destroy every device with a speaker just so Adele couldn’t hurt me anymore. Of course it’s a great song but people needed to let the original breathe before remixing it to within an inch of its life.
Gemstones brings it back in the form of this impressive comeback track that acts as a prelude to his upcoming Elephant in the Room project. The breath control involved here cannot be overstated. There are a lot of rappers who can fire machine gun raps but not many do it with lyrics that hold up to scrutiny.
