Notaslave takes story-telling to the next level with this latest single. Offering the darkness of a classic, hypnotic hip hop soundscape and beat, and riding that wave with a notably regimented, single-toned vocal line, the track has a marching rhythm to it in everything from the drum-line to the vocal to the ultimately empowering promise of the lyrics.
Only a select few hip hop releases of late have managed to captivate in the way that some of the legends of yesteryear could – with a story-line that continues to grip, to intrigue and hold your interest as the details and scenes change and evolve.
Sniper Girl is fascinating, the verses draw you in with darkness and difficulty, then the hook resolves with a sense of optimism and self-belief – the inspiring notion that better is always possible, regardless of how dire your circumstances may be.
Not a story to be revealed by this feature, the sort that requires you to delve into the track for the full passion and artistic intention that Notaslave crafted it with.
