Premiere: Listen to Oyabun's New Single, "Cobain"
Brooklyn-born rapper Oyabun comes from a town that boasts a long lineage of hip hop icons (think Jay Z, The Notorious B.I.G., and Lil’ Kim, for starters), but he’s not interested in simply continuing the tradition: instead, true originality is what this artist is searching for. From the looks of his new single, “Cobain”, it appears he’s found it. Premiering today on Milk, the track celebrates its namesake, musical icon Kurt Cobain, on what would have been his 50th birthday.
“Cobain” is another in a series of lyrical, lively tracks that have continued to cement Oyabun as one to watch, and it’s also the first to be released off of his upcoming EP, LVRBOY.
“I was down a long time, and I’d never want another person to experience what I experienced,” he says. “I made ‘Cobain’ to empower this generation to pursue their passions and fight their doubts. Get up and get yours.”
Peep the new single below, and stay tuned for the full LVRBOY EP, coming later this year.
