Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I will be reviewing Parker Edison’s Halloween track titled, “Gaslit“. Parker reached out to me and told me he was dropping a horror themed single and I was sold! I did not need convincing in reviewing this. This is my first single review so hope I can capture the message I took from this song. I will keep it brief and to the point. The song kicks off right away and grabs your attention. Producer DJ Pnutz did her thing on the production! As soon as the beat drops you get this eerie vibe that something scary or sinister is gonna go down. I say it is like Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend”, but with a dark twist.
This single is very creative. I felt like I was listening to a short film. It was a mixture of a lifetime movie and Slim Shady’s song “Kim” and “Kill You“. This is a dark tale of how obsession can consume you to the point where you become a psycho or someone vindictive!!! This is a spooky song about a man who is not corresponded the way he would like to be and is simply friend zoned. He has created this false reality or perception that him and this person belong together. To the point that it is a toxic obsession versus actual love.
He then becomes angered when he finds out she likes someone else and burns her house down. Definitely check out this song, worth a couple listens to grasp the whole story! This is a perfect creepy storytelling rap song to start of the best month of the year!!! October here we go!!! Parker you literally killed this!
Thank you for reading my brief single review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads!
