MP3: Cadence Weapon and Grimes

If receiving one great record this week wasn't enough for the exponentially growing Grimes fanbase, we have more for your Grimes-y fix. The artist also known as Claire Boucher recently produced fellow Montreal artist Cadence Weapon with this track soaked in 80s rap nostalgia, "88."

The beat is pretty sick. It sounds like a chopped and screwed Sega Genesis, and it counters Cadence Weapon's quick tongue. The Canadian rapper's rhyming creativity is what keeps this track from becoming a mope-fest. "I'm a professional, kid/ make you feel infintesimal/ when I get ready to spit my confessional/ like a congressional bid." Instead, it makes you think, yeah! Who wouldn't miss "Basquiat, Debby Harry, gold wood on the car"?
