Son of Paper is a twenty-four year old multifaceted artist from San Francisco who delivers music that’s influenced from a variety of sources. From 90s hip-hop to Korean rap, SOP is one of those artists who demands attention. At least, that’s what I’ve gathered from his song “Autumn.”
“Autumn” is a song that’s part tribute to the dearly departed, part throwback to simpler times. Namedropping Mac, Doom and Nip on the first verse, SOP channels Mac throughout the song–including the sung portions of verse two. Speaking of those sung portions, they’re endearing while also just being good. I like how the song came together cohesively to be a tribute type of track. I also liked the production, which has some real nostalgic vibes to it–kind of like a ’90s rap song (which makes sense, considering his influences). The way that this one sets up the EP which it appears on is also pretty astonishing as well, as your project is sometimes only as strong as its first song. This first song is very strong.
Check out “Autumn” below, support dope music in all its forms and give flowers to your loved ones while they can still smell them.
