5FingaDisKount, ‘The Raunch’ – Free MP3 Download
We’re still trying to figure out whether 5FingaDisKount is an alter ego — one of Nicholas Freeman’s multiple personalities — or a fully realized hip-hop stage persona.
Like an MC Chris crossed with a relaxed Marshall Mathers, 5FDK has a high-pitched delivery that one might call an acquired taste. His lyrics have plenty of shock value, and in one memorable verse from ‘The Raunch,’ he describes robbing his one-night stand from the night before, rapping, “‘Cause then she noticed I done raided all her s— / I even took her tampons and her hair clips.”
Interestingly, additional listens reveal intelligent nods to the likes of Kid Cudi and Ratatat and a definite appreciation for 2012’s hip-hop starchild, Danny Brown. We asked the Denmark rapper about his live show as 5FingaDisKount, and he painted a typically colorful picture.
“[Laughs] Yeah, people seem to like this moronic monster of mine,” he says. “I perform in a bare-midriff ‘Got Meth’ t-shirt, a white S&M mask with zippers on [the] eyes and mouth and an old-school USSR admiral hat … Don’t forget the brand new fresh Air Force Ones.”
Apparently, this hasn’t scratched the ambitious performer’s creative itch, though, as he went on, “Hopefully, my new band, Christ & the Crackbabies, will also have something out by end of spring!”
With a frontman like 5FingaDisKount and a name like ‘Christ & the Crackbabies,’ we can only begin to imagine what were in store for. In the meantime, check out ‘The Raunch’ below.
