AUTOMatic’s latest proves they’re masters of a kind of grace that’s very hard to find in the murder and money obsessed culture of trap and commercial hip hop. ‘Triple Lindy’ is more of a freeform g-funk jam with non-stop emceeing from three of Milwaukee’s finest underground rappers over the top. Leading the charge is Signif The Gift. Her verses are similar in tone to Little Simz on this side of the pond as she appropriates the quintessentially hip hop hustler narrative (MC with big dreams) to her own experience. It’s impressively lax and effortless, and as Stricklin and APRIME lay on their own bars about the rap game it’s evident AUTOMatic are one of the more thrillingly pure hip hop experiences around.
