Emo rapper guccihighwaters has returned with the release of his second full-length project, ‘joke’s on you’.
The album’s title alludes to the breakthrough artist reflecting on his newfound popularity and initial doubt at the start of his career, featuring collaborations with artists like nothing,nowhere., Ellise, Powfu, and Sarcastic Sounds.
Birthed from isolation and a minimalistic recording setup, joke’s on you” delivers a slow-burning sadness for its duration, showcasing guccihighwaters’ refreshing approach to storytelling. Emotive and relatable lyricism is the album’s clear focal point as it works to foster and maintain a connection with listeners alongside pop-derived choruses, somber melody, and clever lines like “I’m in a straight jacket, you just think it’s fashion,” and “my head starts spinning like the fan on the ceiling.”
‘joke’s on you’ is out now via Epitaph Records.
