TJ Crisp, “Don’t Take It Personal”

We are reveling in all the fresh music for 2018, after a long, year-end lull. Witness “Don’t Take It Personal,” the chillest of new jams from TJ Crisp (aka TJ The Unknown). Revolving on simple piano figure, “Don’t Take It Personal” is a slow burn, growing increasingly unsettling as it evolves. TJ’s flow gets more rapid, the pitch shifts into subtly wobbly territory, and the lines begin to repeat in an almost obsessive cycle. The beat abandons him and he’s left to fade out, “I just be doin’ my thing / I just be doin’ my thing…” Very cool (and probably NSFW):
