Kentucky rapper Allen Poe’s latest offering “Free My Mind” is as introspective as it is infectious, creating a cunning soundtrack fit to accompany an episode of The Twilight Zone--if it were set in New York in the late 1990s, that is. The song, which features Cashius Green and production by Beatnick Dee, is set to appear on Allen Poe’s forthcoming Composure EP. Of the song, Allen Poe explains, “‘Free My Mind’ is me wanting a better world while being unwilling to replace my apathetic lens of doubtful mistrust in humanity for a rose-colored one."
Much like the track suggests, his forthcoming EP will explore similar topics, carrying timely messages and storytelling nuanced by America's stormy social climate and packing modern substance with classic styles. “If America is culturally and politically diseased/divided, we are refusing ourselves some of the best medicine we have and it's often as cheap as a free Soundcloud stream or Bandcamp purchase equal to the cost of a value meal,” Poe added in a statement to REVOLT.
Allen Poe's 7-track EP is slated for an October 27 release via Below System Records. Pre-order available here.
