Salem "King Night"
Kanye West is going to be kicking himself. One day, not far from now, someone from his entourage will lean over to him, and say, "Kanye, man, we just got this disc of these three white kids from Michigan making crazy weird beats. Shit is even sadder and more ominous than anything you've done." Perplexed at the claim, Kanye will ask to hear said beats, and his friend will pop in Salem's debut album, King Night. After the intro for "King Night," the title track's massive, blown-out bass synth, cinematic choir vocals, and crunk-inspired hip-hop beat will drop. About three minutes later, when the song ends, Kanye will look to his friend with a single tear slowly rolling out from underneath his sunglasses, and say, "Damn, those beats are dope."
King Night will be released September 28 via IAMSOUND. (via Stereogum)
