Pink Navel spits heady tongue twisters on “Raw Navel”





Pink Navel spits heady tongue twisters on “Raw Navel”

Although Pink Navel, the solo project of smooth poet Devin Bee, released his full length album Raw Navel over a year ago, the rapper/beatmaker deserves some current recognition. Bee’s particular brand of oddball hip-hop is heavily driven by a stream-of-conscious and absurdist flow of spoken word poetry, highlighted by crunchy lofi beats swaddled in background noise and quirky synth patches. Bee’s poetic content bares a stark similarity to Mike Doughty’s, the mythic voice behind cult group Soul Coughing, while his delivery resembles the smooth confidence of 2000s alt-hip groups like Aesop Rock and Blue Scholars. Raw Navel, in all of its warped obscurity, is a clever and compelling release, and a much needed breath of life in New England’s alternative hip hop scene. You can stream Raw Navel below. -Charley Ruddell
