EDITORS’ NOTES

Pure Beauty is just that—wholly original NYC underground hip-hop dusted with artistic touches. “Zebra” and hazy “If I Can’t Do My” show his microphone mastery as the Queens MC goes hard over vintage samples and rhythms. “Energy” finds Shirt flowing loose and free over a pulsating loop, as if he grabbed the mic at a warehouse party. He even drops a tarot-card reading into “Mise En Abyme” and honors women on “Woman Is God.” Shirt is moving the culture forward.
