New Sleet Mage Featuring Gokou Kuyt: “Pink Dreams”

These two internet-squatting rappers have hooked up together in the past, but “Pink Dreams” finds them both showcasing their best skills while in one another’s orbits. Set over an appropriately bleary-eyed beat, Sleet Mage delivers sing-song lines jumping from J-pop t-shirt material (“I feel like a shooting star”) to more ripped-from-context shout outs to Gucci and “two cups.” They make it sound aching, though. Gokou Kuyt, meanwhile, does a great bit of whisper rap on the verses, planting some melancholy that really sprouts come the return to the hook. Listen above.
