The most recent beat battle took place on his Twitch feed, featuring an appearance by guest judge Isaiah Rashard, one of rap's most elusive characters. Together, they cycled through the ten finalists, as voted by the people -- but as the idiom goes, the best is almost always saved for last. Of course, "best" is in the eye of the beholder, and sometimes beholders can be downright mischievous bastards. By the time the final beat came around, Kenny and Isaiah had already engaged in plenty of banter. It had quickly been established that the samples Kenny provided weren't entirely easy mode , and many of the instrumentals struggled to impress as a result. Upon hitting play for the tenth and final beat 34 minutes , it quickly became evident that this one was special. As three sloppily sequenced piano keys segued into the chosen vocal sample, all hell proceeded to break loose.

Anyone who's been anywhere near me since Isaiah Rashad 's Cilvia Demo came out has either heard me go on about it or been subjected to repeated playings of it. It was a cult hit that didn't seem to reach the superstar status many felt it deserved, especially being released on TDE, the label that's home to giants like Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q. It also fell into that modern hip-hop trap of being very difficult to define: I've heard it variously described as an album, a mixtape and an EP. One of the first tracks that got Rashad attention was '2x Pills' in which he raps over a Flying Lotus beat. In FlyLo's music I find there is both a push forward into making something new while also having reverence for older musical forms like soul and spiritual jazz. Part of what I loved about Cilvia Demo was the way Rashad seemed to do something similar as he rapped over off-kilter post-Dilla rhythms and cloud rap alongside updated jazz-rap beats. On The Sun's Tirade he raps over a drum 'n' bass-ish break and a trap Mike-Will-Made-It beat, but he mostly leans in favour of this more reverent jazz-rap style. This is one of the big differences that TDE artists have with the other major players in hip-hop at the moment. All of this being said, The Sun's Tirade is a good hip-hop album, especially for a chill summer's day.
