From its cutting-edge sounds to its introspective lyrics, CozyClyde's new track "Stylist" pushes the rap genre into uncharted emotional and stylistic territory

CozyClyde's "Stylist," is a standout piece that’s got me genuinely excited about the rap scene again. Clocking in at a solid 4 minutes, the track never overstays its welcome but delivers a remarkable wallop in the time it has. It has so much to offer. So, let's break it down.

From the opening bars, "Stylist" is a kaleidoscopic blend of beats and autotuned vocals that draw you into a soundscape akin to an 8-bit video game. It's an immediate attention-grabber, but what truly magnetises me about it is the poetic underbelly of the lyrics. Sure, it ticks all the boxes of modern rap themes, but there's an elusive aura that's hard to pin down. It's not just the music; it's a state of mind.

"Stylist," according to the artist himself, goes beyond the sartorial realm. It beckons us to ask: Is our choice of fashion simply an outer veneer or a mirror reflecting our inner complexities? How does what we wear articulate the deeper nuances of who we are? I find it fascinating how this track manages to weave these abstract ideas into its narrative whilst feeling so loose in tone.

The tempo switches between upbeat ebullience and relaxing gait in one flawless transition towards the end. The twee sounds and trap percussion blend throughout so effortlessly that you will almost certainly find yourself in a trance whilst contemplating the song's more profound questions.

For all the above reasons, I'd return to "Stylist" on my playlist again, probably late at night when I need something to ponder whilst relaxing. It's beautiful that there are still hip-hop tracks out there that take on this vibe - I'm 100% here for what's to come from CozyClyde in the near future.
