LA rapper/producer Busdriver has no problem testing the comfort level of his listeners, whether he’s bouncing massive, lopsided beats around your skull or rapping about racial politics and pubes in the same breath. But left-field lyrics and an occasionally rough delivery aside, he’s succeeded in provoking thought using working-class signifiers to convey complex social dichotomies in the same way a rapper like Open Mike Eagle has. “The feds are using your phone data for revenge porn,” says Driver on last year’s Thumbs mixtape. Then, just when you feel like you’re getting used to his weirdness, he’ll flash his softer side with a song like the beautiful, Kenny Segal-produced, Anderson .Paak-featuring “Worlds to Run” to catch you off guard. The point, it seems, is that Busdriver is a mixed bag, full of the good and bad, pretty and ugly, like the world, and like everyone listening. TODD HAMM
