Dallas, Texas emerging rapper SADFACETHUGGIN returns to drop his first single of the year with “Detonator.” This single was premiered on Zane Lowe’s radio broadcast this morning, and is meant to be the first track off of SADFACETHUGGIN’s forthcoming album SADFACE III, which is on the way. There is definitely a lane for this in rap today, as we see many young rappers implement melodic crooning in their raps over some hard hitting 808s. I personally don’t find anything wrong with that, so long as the music is good and doesn’t get too stale and repetitive. SADFACE has been able to cultivate a good core fan base with his previous two EP’s he’s dropped within the past 6 months. While still only being 18 years old, I’m going to be looking forward to seeing if SADFACTHUGGIN can put out some music that we can relate back to his story and to what’s going on in his life. I feel if we can get that on this next album he can solidify his spot and continue you to grow in this rap ecosystem, especially while blasting off with the energy of “Detonator”.
