$$$ by Midas.Gold (Prod. HARVEY)
Bold and a legit baller, Brisbane rapper Midas.Gold is back with another track that will have you seeing dollar signs. His debut single 000000 caught my attention, as well as tastemakers around the globe, amassing a whopping 53K plays on Soundcloud. Midas has recently found himself supporting some big names in the rap game such as Danny Brown and the Underachievers. It’s no doubt that his unique vocal element is what sets him apart from other up and coming rap artists. Midas has got his finger on the money, quite literally.
$$$ is indeed a dollar rhyme. Gaining help from local producer HARVEY, the track begins with the ambient use of Chinese gongs. I feel like I’m meditating in a Buddhist temple; I’ve got some incense burning, all is silent. Suddenly, I hear an auto-tuned growl from the shadows and my zen is thrown. Phat distorted bass and snare hits sound like a staccato hiss of a snake and have me grooving. I’ve gone from mindful monk to oriental rap wife in seconds. Midas.Gold has a husk to his voice that is uncommon, this is why he will succeed.
My entrance song if I was a wrestler on WWE.
Look out for:
Midas.Gold has hitched a ride with another up and coming Aussie rapper, Ivan Ooze who’s currently set out on a 10 date nationwide bender entitled the 93′ Rotisserie KFC Gold Tour. They perform Bris tonight at Black Bear Lodge.
