Monster Boy and Interscope Records Artiste, Cruel Santino formerly known as Santi has released a single titled “End Of The Wicked” produced by GMK. This track lays out a melancholic ambience cutting through sultry waves and an affinity for dark and twisting scenarios. Santo is no stranger to experimenting with his higher influences and possible alter egos, it is evident in his sound and the momentary image he has managed to curate for himself.
Recognizing and leveraging his synch with Octavian, he goes back to the French-British Rapper and further reaffirms his supposed liberation from a metaphorically described evil female. The short visualizer he shared before releasing the song is proof positive of Santino’s penchant for Vintage Nigerian art. As always, Santino born “End Of The Wicked” is a premeditated result of his artistic genius.
The song translates to an absolute bop, owing to the minimalist effects coupled with the vintage and cultural aura surrounding the piece of work.As eerie as the sounds are, they provoke you to yearn for more and reach out in the darkness. Santino’s music is a pointer to how we live in a ‘Cruel Universe,’ although, it may not cut across the mainstream audience as pop offerings but it highlights his peculiarity and desire for freaky oddities. Santi and Octavian on this track, explore the darker aspects of sex, drugs, higher influences, women, other highs and the lows that come with losses. Circumspectly, we’re getting to know one side of Santi better.
