I gotta be honest, y’all. When I first got the tweet from Plewto Smith, I immediately thought this was going to be wack. I know I know…total dick move. I really have to stop being so presumptuous, because, in this case…I was totally wrong. I don’t know much about this guy, but by his picture he appears to be pretty young. That’s impressive because he doesn’t seem to be making stereotypical young kid rap music.
Is it overly original? Nah. Is it mind blowing? Nah. Is it good, though? In my opinion, definitely. I like the guy’s approach to music. He seems hella confident on the mic. His flow is nice and he’s got a decent singing voice to boost. The beat was super dope and he rode it like a almost-professional porn star. It says it was produced by someone named Kayzee. Never heard of him, but it has that laid back 90’s era Hiero style to it with the deep basslines and the keyboard sounds. And Plewto did his thing pretty nicely over it.
Twitter is basically a song about what dude feels like he’s doing with music as well as what he wants to do with it. It’s braggadocios without being overly boasting. It’s stylish without being too swaggy. I also like how he used the title “Twitter” to go with his jam. “Follow meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…..”
Again, I’m not going to front like this is the best shit I’ve ever heard, but I’m also not going to lie and say it didn’t have my head bobbin’ for a minute (no pause). With a little work, I think this guy could be a good addition to that “uplifting and accessible, while still appealing to an underground market” area of hip hop. Keep doing your thing, Plewto. I’d be interested in checking out a full project.
