THE mysterious rapper, signed to West Coast Hip-Hop/Electronic label Brainfeeder, has the internet salivating over his identity. Popular rumors? Flying Lotus, Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Jay Electronica, MF Doom, some other member of Odd Future, some other artist on Brainfeeder, Rejjie Snow, or some collaboration between some of the artists above. Maybe he’s a collaboration between all of Odd Future and Brainfeeder.
Or maybe he’s someone completely different.
The deluxe version of his debut mixtape “Duality” drops tonight, and you can get it for free at the link below. Whoever he is, he’s big enough to get production from Madlib, Just Blaze, TNGHT, Flying Lotus, and Samiyam on these tracks.
Update: Flying Lotus revealed himself to be Captain Murphy at a live show last night in Los Angeles.
