[B]rooklyn art rapper Orrin is about to take over. His sound layers lyrics deconstructing the modern male experience over SoundCloud beats and experimental soundscapes, while his fashion-forward image combines 2017 street style with vintage Tommy, toy shop sunglasses and a taste for emerging NYC designers. Evidently, Orrin’s rapidly expanding world exists beyond the confining stereotypes typically reserved for New York City rappers.
His latest single “Superstar” subverts the tropes of the hip-hop genre – material wealth, narcotics and overt sexuality. It’s a melodic, two-minute take on the constructed identity of the modern day rap star that will leave you questioning everything you admired about your old favourite rapper.
So hear “Superstar” below, read on to find out why you should be buying Bitcoin over Balmain and follow Orrin on Instagram here. Photographs in this article by Emma Rogue and Dannah Gottlieb.
