Nafets channels the likes Donald Glover, Mac Miller & Earl Sweatshirt into a breathless hip-hop anthem, energetic and mournful in equal measure. This track is pretty much the perfect reason why you should get on this bizarre extraterrestrial before he departs this galaxy.
Nafets came to Earth on an asteroid. Or at least that's what it felt like, growing up the son of Trinidadian parents in a black suburb in Maryland, attending a mostly white school in Washington. "I felt like I was always torn between several worlds and cultures and it would often make me feel very excluded and alone," he explains. "I felt I didn’t fit in with friends or society in neither Trinidad nor America." That experience of feeling alien – like he'd crash-landed on a meteorite, clawed his way out of a crater and tried to assimilate into a world he didn't belong – was the spark for his cult acclaimed 2016 breakout single 'Asteroid', described as “hard-hitting” by HipHopDx and a “spacey, sobering rap destroyer” by FACT.
