NYC indie Hip Hop: Creature

NYC indie Hip Hop: Creature

Before the iconic Fat Beats on 6th Ave closed, you could find Creature and his rapper cohorts perched on its stoop pushing their CDs hand-to-hand. Despite his personal accessibility, Creature is an artist whose legacy reaches deep into the archives of independent Hip Hop. His collaborations are many and varied, and his skills as an MC reflect the hustle he has repeatedly invoked as his credo. The "Chester Himes" EP, with production by glitch-hop dynamo Prefuse 73, finds Creature’s signature New York flow presented with an equally engrossing musical backdrop. Creature has always been a thoughtful beast, and the ethereal synth-driven beats complement his vibe perfectly. The only mystery is why it ends so soon! - BrokeMC
