Despot – “House Of Bricks”

Pop

New York underground rap monster Despot has been doing serious damage on other people’s songs in recent years. He’s shown up on tracks with people like El-P and Das Racist and Blood Orange, and he’s just wrecked shit. And he’s kept himself busy, touring with Run The Jewels and co-hosting his “Down 4 So Long (Remix)” collaborator Ezra Koenig’s Beats 1 radio show. But he hasn’t come out with his own album, something that’s become a running joke among people who pay attention to this sort of thing. So it’s enormously encouraging to see that he’s got a new single out today, and it’s even more encouraging that it bangs. “House Of Bricks” has a chorus that riffs on “The Three Little Pigs” and a gasping beat from E*Vax, one half of Ratatat. And Despot sounds strong as hell on it. Listen below.

“House Of Bricks” is out now on iTunes.
