2Mex/SonGodSuns Over the Counter Culture
- Words: Ben Bush
- Label: Up Above
2Mex has a wildly stylized delivery, full of massive speed fluctuations and serious bellowing which, at best, makes his strictly so-so lyrics indecipherable. The production here is nothing complicated but makes use of some interesting sounds, tossing heavy metal drum breaks into the middle of a creamy hip-hop tracks and accelerating sampled R&B singers to Chipmunks velocity. His best rhyme ("condom/double entendrum") is couched in his post-punk track "Lie Love You" and there‘s something Zappa or Ween-esque about his self-hate in "Didn‘t Mean to Touch Your Hand."
