Atlanta rapper Lil Gnar is back with a new dense single, “Stonecrest.” After his previous track “Triple S,” produced by Chief Keef, Gnar clearly refined his skill set. Moreover, this track features absolutely relentless flows, lyrical depth, and a powerful music video. With all this in mind, this newest single is one of the most definitive and idiosyncratic Gnar tracks to date.
While aggression and cold-blooded demeanors are nothing new in hip-hop, the 26-year-old processes them in his own way. For example, his rusty and rugged voice makes for a surprisingly engaging vocal performance, where his lines are more important than the hype behind them. There’s a certain weariness to his voice that may disinterest some listeners, but that makes his cutting lines all the more potent. Furthermore, it’s a style he already honed quite successfully on his debut 43B single, “Almighty Gnar” with Chief Keef.
Sosa signed Gnar to his 43B label, in partnership with RBC Records/BMG, back in June of 2022. Since then, the two aforementioned singles have done a lot to define his style and approach to trap music. On this track in particular, the Atlanta MC goes into themes of forgiveness, resilience, and redemption. Still, his focus is unwavering, his writing is sharp, and his style makes for some really compelling verses and beats.
