Last year, Milwaukee’s IshDARR staked claim as one of the more talented pure rappers in a city bubbling with exciting new artists and perspectives in hip-hop. On songs like “Nothing,” IshDARR made his raw ability abundantly clear, a young emcee capable of impressive technical displays that never felt forced or unnecessarily showy.

New single “Too Bad” adds a bit of flair to IshDARR’s formula, forcing  inventiveness with a beat that combines future bass bounce and traditional rap rhythm. More importantly, “Too Bad” feels like the most complete song in the young rapper’s catalog, a fuller vision than simply a collection of impressive rhymes.

IshDARR’s debut album Old Soul, Young Spirit is coming soon and, if you’re lucky, you can catch him in the streets and various venues of SXSW.
