(Fly Young Individuals)

Chicago hip hop artist Misfit kicks it hard and real on his latest single “Money Talk.” The track is from his upcoming EP The Unchosen Ones, which is slated to drop in July 2020. The song is a chilled-out exhortation to get paid, grind for success, and look good doing it. The beat is built around a smooth classical guitar loop with minimal drums and does an excellent job keeping listeners focused on Misfit’s bars, which are inspiring and articulate. His flows here match the languid energy of the beat and his choice to stay in the pocket in such a way does a lot to let the truth of his lyrics come through.
Misfit has bounced between a musical life and living the corporate dream for the last few years but is firmly back on his creative journey these days. That’s great news because he’s got the right touch to achieve a major come-up with crucial tracks like “Money Talk.” Misfit has the sound, vision, and motivation needed to become the next great rapper to emerge from the Chi. Play this cut just once and you’ll understand.
