Filed under rappers who don’t look like rappers. Lushlife raps like he’s Inspectah Deck’s scrappy younger brother, but looks like a severe breed of hipster that would shock and confuse your dad the first time he dropped you off at NYU. On “The Romance of the Telescope,” Lushlife ignores the obvious route of his tie-dye, vegan beat (a dreamy sample of British synthpop group OMD) and raps about worldly things like dice games and basketball teams. “Cinder block rap,” he calls it. But listen closely and you’ll catch some deep musings in there, Instagram caption type shit.
