Earlier this week, I had text conversations with my friends about masked musicians. I wanted to know if any crossed over to the mainstream, successfully, without us knowing what they look like without it on. Names like Sia,
R Kelly, MF DOOM, HER, and Ghostface Killah were names that my friends mentioned, but the listed contenders didn’t meet the requirements of what I was thinking. However, RMR seems to be the artist I was thinking of, without knowing of his existence. In February upon the release of ‘Rascal’ and its stark visual component, so many people texted me to ask if I saw it or if I knew who he was.
In my recent memory, Tyler, the Creator is the last artist, to evoke such a response with the release of ‘Yonkers’, which now has 123 million views on YouTube. I remember when it had 300 views; I’m sure I have a screenshot somewhere, but let’s get back to the subject at hand. RMR released the official video for ‘DEALER’ almost a month ago, to the date, and it has 2.1 million views and counting. Some days ago, he unleashed the audio to the official remix with Future and Lil Baby. You can listen to the track below.
