Raxstar – “Name On The Poster”

Bashment, Hip Hop, Pop, R&B, Rap, UK Asian

Score: 5.1

It’s alright to try different things. It’s even ok for more thoughtful rappers to use Auto Tune. However, you’ve got to do it well, and it should make sense. Almost nothing here on “Name On The Poster” feels right, and subsequently whilst it attempts to come across as a fun summer ditty, it falls flat. Even Raxstar’s lyrics aren’t on point (which is a genuine rarity) and whilst the video is fun, the music, chorus, rhymes and vocal effects all contribute to make this a forgettable track. Independent observers would look at a track like this and know instantly why there are still so few recommendable Asian MC’s, so Raxstar needs to plot his next move carefully.
