Kyle Rapps – “Dark Hour”

Kyle Rapps – “Dark Hour”




Following last year’s innovative Perverse Ramblings LP, Kyle Rapps returns with searing stream-of-conscious raps about the issues plaguing our nation on his self-produced new single, “Dark Hour.”

The track borrows its hook and overarching message from Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1967 speech at the National Conference for New Politics. Among other points, he makes it clear that the U.S. is distinctly divided in two; a statement that still rings true more than 50 years later. Rapps is obviously aware of this, choosing not just to include the speech sample in the chorus, but to also drive home MLK’s points in his own words.

However, “Dark Hour” isn’t only an indictment of our times, though it does feature a particularly potent lyrical shot at 45. Rapps also uses his hypnotizing production to bring to light another struggle—the desire for sex and perhaps not knowing the best time to ask for it. Without giving away too much of the borderline-hysterical second verse, the Mexico-based artist’s bars about getting flipped off by a female are particularly rewind-worthy.
