8-Bit We Sold Our Souls for Nothing
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Ninjastar
Since their "Ghettochip Malfunction" remix on Beck's Gameboy Variations EP, 8-Bit has ridden a wave of hype leading up to We Sold Our Souls for Nothing, their third LP. Maintaining their reputation for fun, Nintendo-inspired beats, the band brings forth a successful production, but as rappers they fall flat. Sure, tracks like "Coke" and "Aw Hell Naw" are certified bangers, but the group's lyrics are so steeped in wise-assery that the record quickly annoys. From the British-mocking "Krumpets" to potty-mouthed anthems like "Suckmadick," We Sold Our Souls packs too much irony into its 40-minute runtime.
