The new VMG signee is back with his first release of 2014 as QuESt links up with in-house beatsmith (and one of my favorite new producers) 6ix for “Fuck You Mean”. From the first second, the Miami emcee turns up his signature break-neck flow. This one isn’t just raps though; the flows, extra layers on the vocals, and variety of deliveries really stand out on the first listen. I sense even more of a technical complexity from QuESt as a longtime listener. Matching that complexity is the beat itself: 6ix masterfully puts in some strings, which were the subtle highlight for me during QuESt’s verses (the piercing outro is up there too).
Listen below, the run it back, because this is the type of fast-paced lyrical song that you need to digest more than once.
