Everyone lost their collective minds during the week when statements came out saying Gorillaz new music.

Featuring feature rapper du jour Vince Staples (see him with Flume on this little beaut)

Hopping on a twisted flow that is his characteristic, but I think features too much of the chorus “the sky is fallin baby/drop that ass fore it crash” which I don’t mind but I feel die hard Gorillaz fans and those not au fait with Mistah Vince may not  like. But I implore you to look a little deeper. He is an accomplished and clever lyricist making not so subtle social commentary , “you can live your dreams long as you don’t look like me/be a puppet on a string hanging from a fucking tree”.
