I be swimming with the sharks/ I do not need a cageI be lost when you need me/ Sorta like car keys
Kentucky artist Allen Poe gives us, “Hara Kiri,” a short but sweet freestyle that packs a punch. Hara kiri (or Seppuku) translated in English is the ritual suicide by disembowelment practiced by the Japanese Samurai.
The title is fitting- Poe definitely murders this track. His lyricism is smart and his word play is unique. He uses the word play to make listeners think about his words in a visceral way i.e. “horror story with hara kari, spilling guts out.” Poe navigates perfectly over this grimy Hannibal King produced joint.
