The anticipation for Zamir and Kid Kudz latest single probably has something to with the ominous purple coating both rappers are animated with for the accompanying promotional artwork and image. Whether “Dangerous” lives up to expectations is subjective, but it’s not because you’re going to be ambivalent after listening to the track.
Some of Zamir’s smoothest flow ever surfaces on “Dangerous”; Out in Cairo ladies call me mo salah/ Evidently too clean for their fathers’. The unique arrangement of a minimalist drum line, takes some getting used to but as the rhythm sets in with synths, the Chwkdze produced track morphs and transforms but stays a consistent melody all the way. Which is great because by the time Kida comes in to close the track, “Dangerous” evens out as one of the smoothest hip-hop tracks we have heard this year from these parts.

NB: An earlier version of this story misquoted Zamir’s line, this error has been corrected.
Mariam is (insert pretentious stuff about myself here). Share your thoughts with me @MA_Y_M
