Injury Reserve: Sometimes Things are Better on the Sideline
Aiight… moment of honesty, I just got hip to Injury Reserve. I know I know, better late than never though and so here we are. I came across the full album video for their self titled debut album on youtube and off to the races we go. I quickly realized the video is actually their private listening event held in Los Angeles. Conceptually this blew me away and I couldn’t help but wonder were all there moves this well thought out. As I dug deeper in to the group and their history the more it felt like they were built by a modern hip hop efficiency engineer. There’s no wasted energy or movement with them and its utterly refreshing. Everything is broken down in to smaller content. Ok, so maybe they’re what would happen if Odd Future, Mac Miller, and the Cool Kids had a baby and then gave it up for adoption to Gary V. Yea that’s it. Press Play.
