Album single by The UK-based emcee/producer duo White Girl Wasted (Sonnyjim & The Purist) which boasts guest appearances by the highly touted pairing of the late MF DOOM and Jay Electronica.
The track impeccably melds high-brow lyricism with The Purist’s dusty, lo-fi production, making this a treat for true school rap aficionados. The track is taken from the pair's well-received self-titled full length effort, White Girl Wasted, which in addition to the Brighton-based beatsmith, gloats production by the likes of the legendary DJ Premier and Madlib. But it’s “Barz Simpson” that has amassed the lion’s share of fanfare, amassing well over a million combined streams via DSPs, with an abundance of online coverage: “The woozy funk beat on lead single “Barz Simpson” conjures a seamy, smoky, post-disco world where Sonnyjim, MF Doom, and Jay Electronica can run wild.” -Pitchfork. Prior to this release, Sonnyjim has been making a name for himself with a relentless work ethic with collaborations from the likes of Conway The Machine, Kool Keith, Pink Siifu, Chris Crack, Slug (Atmosphere), Buckwild and more. The Purist has previously collaborated with the likes of Roc Marciano, Action Bronson, Westside Gunn, Your Old Droog, and Freddie Gibbs, among others.
