The second single from his upcoming conceptual album, ‘Midnight’ evokes feelings of rage whilst the accompanying video subdues audiences with complex cerebral imagery. This album has challenged Prime Sinister to write in a singular style coined by Prime Sinister as ‘Syllablism’ which interconnects his lyrics and emphasises their symmetrical nature. The post apocalyptic setting of the alternative universe where this song is set is produced in the programmed instrumental, emulating warning sirens.
Prime Sinister has defined himself as a revolutionary lyricist with his new complex writing style labelled as ‘Syllablism’. This style allows for increased word play and complex intertextual meaning. Working with producer Harvey Gunn, Prime Sinister is working to push hip hop writing into the next stage of its evolution, emphasising its complexity and positioning for social commentary.
‘Midnight’ is available now from all major digital platforms.
