On Sun Go Nova, Detroit rapper Denmark Vessey is breezy, calm, and nonlinear, and this brief collection skitters between the cosmic, the mundane, and the absurd with levity.
Recorded during the same sessions as last year’s Buy Muy Drugs, Vessey’s manic collaboration with Chicago producer Azarias, Sun Go Nova is just as scatterbrained and wide-swinging. On “Zzzzz” Vessey uses his “counterfeit money phone” to make prank calls, threatens politicians that misuse tax money, and confronts a lover for sending too many texts. On “SunGoNova” he thanks JAY-Z for explaining the risks of selling drugs and discloses his lady’s preferred pasta dish (pad thai). Buy Muy Drugs wove such oddball minutia into a prickly, acerbic satire; Sun Go Nova relishes their lack of connection.
