Boog3ym3n rappers C-Silence (Chad Brown) and Willie Diction (Willie Winklesky) and their producer/DJ MidiEvil (Nick Pawlenty) are all about spooky vibes — ambient tones, heavy bass, and dark melodies — and good times. MidiEvil’s beats come with plenty of thump and evoke equally ominous but maybe more melodic echoes of the Seattle group Grayskul. C-Silence and Willie Diction’s rhymes cover a lot of themes and styles, from boom-bap braggadocio to deep philosophizing and tricky wordplay. It sounds like they’ve inhaled a bunch of major-label and indie rappers from the past 20 years and exhaled something all their own.
