Both Sides :: Click-Clack Explores Boom-Bap With ‘Sequence’ EP

artworks-000571747277-37bun5-t500x500

At its core, hip-hop is nothing if it’s not cyclical.  A strange dance occurs in this genre/culture where we seem to be both influencing and reflecting on what’s popular, what we moved past, and what’s coming back around.  I say that to say this… when I first got to know Click-Clack, he was a raw MC with infinite talent in search of a sound that he could call his own.  Over the years, he has attempted (and successfully nailed) a few different sounds, but on Sequence, it appears that Click-Clack may be going back to some of the things that (seemingly) inspired him to start rhyming, especially over the OTESLA production that makes up the EP.  All of the cleverness, pride, self-reflection, humor and swagger we’ve come to expect from Click-Clack is here, but the production elevates it to a different level reminiscent of the ‘true-school’ era of hip-hop that helped catapult it into the lofty position it has held for the past two decades or so.  Long story short, Sequence is that raw hip-hop shit that us lovers of the music seek, so definitely give it a listen, leave a comment or two on your favorite tracks, and share it around on your favorite streaming service so others can do the same.
