RawInked is an urban artist from Cleveland Ohio. His track “Ass & Titties” has been going viral with a Twerk Challenge on YouTube. It is a fully-functioning statement, concise and muscular, executing a clear vision – get down and let it pop!  It’s a dance jam, but a compulsively listenable one, with velvety bass booming production and RawInked’s typically naughty lyrics. Partial to being a chameleon on the mic, he flits between his natural cadence and a combination of trap staccato and well-timed adlibs. This is an attention-seeking, instant gratification track. Just slip it on and bounce with it. No lyrical complexities, no cryptic messages to decipher, no bullsh*t storytelling – only straight up, feel-good hip hop.

RawInked lays his cards on the table right from the start: “Ass and titties. All I see is ass and titties. Ass and titties. Can I touch that ass and titties?” He carries the type of necessary charisma and confidence that a track this blatant requires. It’s infectious, groovy, and high energy, while using the harmonies effectively.

RawInked’s potential to produce infectious hooks is showcased here. The playful chorus not only elicits dance moves, but also sticks to the brain long after the track comes to an end. His voice feels like a light gust of cool wind.

“Ass & Titties” certifies RawInked’s relevance and reveals the breadth of his skills. He clearly infuses his rapping with an airy sort of melodicism that makes his words seem to hang in the air, lingering even as the song moves forward. It worms its way into your brain and adds texture to the record.

It personifies the modern artistic sound of the new wave of rappers, making this song irresistibly fun. You can tell someone is dead inside if this beat doesn’t inspire them to bounce. This is probably catchiest piece of horny silliness I’ve heard in ages.

If “Ass & Titties” teaches us anything about RawInked, it’s that he’s at his best when whipping us into pulse-quickening frenzies and staying vibrant with the ear candy vocal deliveries, rather than going for more bare-bones, typical rap or pop shit.

There is plenty of room for fun, tantalizing upbeat music in rap, as there is for politically minded protest songs. Both can coexist without taking away from the other, especially when it’s as well executed as this. The track also benefits from its straightforward, unassuming goal: making you bounce. He takes a proven formula no one minds experiencing again and pushes it into unexplored territory.

RawInked establishes himself as a highly progressive artist, one who steeps himself in modern rap, distilling the chaos of young lust into vital, undeniable Hip Hop.  “Ass & Titties” may only last two minutes, but RawInked proves himself to have the chops to sustain a long and varied run going forward.
