Xpression gets on a track with TMF Precha and Excluzive to make a conscious trap sort of song. “Bent Rules” tells the story of the three artists coming up and getting their just due in the face of adversity and naysayers. The premise is simple enough, but the rhymes are what hammer the point(s) home.
Each artist who has something to say does so in a way that is poignant and lyrical all at once. It’s a solid track to vibe out with after a stressful day, even if it’s just to count your blessings. I enjoyed the production on the track as well, since it kind of reminded me of a Tech N9ne or Bone Thugs song (and while I’m not the biggest Tech fan, I appreciate what he’s done in the game and his ear for beats). Check out “Bent Rules” below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
