Listen: Chester Watson - "Phantom"

While falling down the rabbit hole of Youtube, I cam across this video for the track entitled "Phantom" and the eventual mixtape of the same title by Chester Watson. Impressed by the 15 year olds approach to music, he makes many of his own beats and experiments with the lo-fi, looped, old school vibe that helps him stand apart from most teenagers who tend to ape the current radio sounds. He sounds at times like a mix of Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and MF Doom, speaking in code with psyched out flows, but seems to be having fun with it and I appreciate any emcee trying to be more honest in his music, even in a "spaced out" persona.

Check out the free download of his mixtape and see for your self:
