Ahead of his upcoming EP, we took a look at obake’s most recent track, pretty basic, a unique blend of emo rap and hyperpop highlighting the Houston native’s talented songwriting and great ear for beats.

The song’s emotional lyrics, backed with lo-fi synths, take the listener through obake’s past, present, and future thoughts – an autobiographical hit to remain supreme throughout his career.

As we previously learned from obake, the past year’s events have greatly impacted his writing and music themes. However, emotional expression remains a key player in the creation of most new music from obake, including his most recent release, pretty basic, and you should be sure to take a listen.
