After panning the underwhelming, albeit wildly popular “Old Town Road,” it’s about time Digital High got into the Lil Nas X game. What better place to jump in then with the breakout rhyme-spitter’s follow up single.
“Panini,” track #2 on his newly pressed 7 EP, follows the familiar genre-defying mold of its predecessor with a focus on straight hip-hop while interpolating revered alt-rock; the latter presenting itself through another subtle sample. If you listen close enough you’ll notice a lean on Nirvana’s grunge classic “In Bloom” for melodic support.
While it’ll be hard to top the undeniable successes of his breakout, the young man is clearly on to something. Stream below, grab a copy courtesy of Columbia, and spread that social love:
