Over producer SIM’s lo-fi production, Eliy Orcko’s “WHATEVER!” is one of those songs that hits you in your feels, regardless of what you’re looking for. It’s a rare song that, while it has one set emotion, still manages to elicit various feelings from its audience.
If you’re looking for a song about the dissolution of a relationship, this one’s got you. If you’re looking for a boombap-esque song where the protagonist is trying to figure out who he is and where he belongs, yes, “WHATEVER!” has that too. Overall, it’s one of those tracks that you need to put in a playlist of mellow raps. It’s not depressive, but it’s not exactly high-energy and full of happy moments, either. Instead, it’s more about Eliy finding some sort of peace within his decisions and his losses. The song also appears to seek a bit of stability within crappy situations–be they completely Orcko’s fault or otherwise.. Check out the track below and support dope music in all its forms.
