As a monumental fan of 80s hits, and especially of those found on the Say Anything soundtrack, GMK’s new EP of the same name was a mini-revelation for me. The MC/producer interpolates samples from five tracks found on the original album into undeniable nuggets of hip-hop/electro-pop goodness. There’s the requisite Peter Gabriel flip (“N Your Eyes”), which G reworks into a lovelorn rap ballad, and the lesser known Freiheit sample (“Keeping The Dream Alive”) where the SEA native rhymes pensive over a spacious, idle beat.
