Leif Riggs smashes his way through the darkness in his latest release ‘Phantom’.



LEIF RIGGS

Phantom (Produced by InsaneBeatz)

Encinitas, United States



Leif Riggs smashes his way through the darkness in his latest release ‘Phantom’. Coming in strong from the start, lingering bass notes splutter across keys in a clinical transition to add effect. As the boom bap elevates the remainder of the track we hear lyrics that reflect the conscious lyrical contents of 90s-inspired hip-hop. Fresh Prince of Belair theme tune with a darker turn comes to mind here. A choir vocal chop hides in the background to add that extra piece of haunting for us.


I could listen to this song again and again and more than likely will. Talks of creating your life, purpose and the true storytelling of motivational rap will consume any listener if you take the time to truly listen. There is no major progression within the piece, everything remains consistent throughout, this works perfectly to enhance the rawness of Riggs’ words.
