Another Chicago MC I’ve been sleeping on has hit my inbox. It makes sense, as the talented Dirk Digz took a lengthy hiatus from music. Luckily for us, he’s back with his new track The Anthem. It’s been a year since his last drop, and Dirk is looking to make a comeback with this record. Looks like he’ll have no trouble, as he seems to have found his sound in content and production. The Anthem is a horrorcore take on hip hop, with a helping hand from producer Ezra. Elements of metal and rock permeate Dirk’s storytelling of his hopelessness, tough upbringing, and a chorus that is surprisingly catchy for its filthy content. It’s a lengthy record, but a proper re-introduction to the promising underground rapper.
