It doesn’t take two seconds before the new artist on the block get comparisons fired at them. Then seemingly another 2 seconds pass and they’re victim to their own comparisons to the even newer kids on the block. It’s all a vicious circle and Ibn Inglor doesn’t appreciate it.
These are the thoughts echoed on Ibn’s new track “Black Print”, his last release before the heavily anticipated New Wave drops. Produced by Tom Tripp, “Black Print” issues a warning shot to anyone who dares to juxtapose his talents to anyone, especially his Chi-Town superior, Kanye West.
Unfortunately these comparisons are inevitable, especially when an artist of such talent as Ibn steps in, however it’s refreshing to see a new kid on the block as himself address the issue. Whilst most artists revel in such commendations until they implode – as many do – Ibn uses the oozing creativity of his to put a daunting, synth heavy spin on things.
Call him the new… Actually we better not.
This is Ibn Inglor.
