Chester Watson - I Get It (Prod bzkt & Chester Watson) [Video]

Nü Age Syndicate member Chester Watson drops off  visuals for "I Get It" from his recently released project Spring Mirage. The eerie, sporadic production comes compliments of bzkt and Watson himself. The Pablo Vasquez directed visuals find Chester and his crew wiling out at a hotel goth party they threw to celebrate his homecoming.

It's a bit trappy, there's 808s, styrofoam cups, and auto-tuned wealth-related lines, but even so, it's a far cry from trap. Categorizing Chester Watson's sound is a futile and fruitless endeavor. Despite that, a lot of day one Chester fans have been complaining about the new sound, accusing him of promoting the mainstream agenda and switching his inspirations from Doom to Young Money. In an interview with Passion of the Weiss, Watson addressed those who feel he has strayed from his original sound:

"I want people to know that I’m not like Odd Future at all. I’m not like Doom. I just got my first influences from them, but was never like them. I liked rave music from the start. Those guys were like the training wheels of rap for me, but it’s like Chester is on his own now. He took off his training wheels. That’s Spring Mirage."

So, there you have it. The new sound is not a joke, it's what Chester Watson wants to be doing and if you're not about it then move along. Personally, I think people need to stop being so afraid of change. If he was still a 15-year-old rapping over borrowed beats, then he would still have that sound. But, the reality is, he's getting paid now and days and, since he's rapping about his reality, he will be talking about money more than he used to. That being said, I don't see this as a track that idealizes wealth, he seems far from proud about his new found success, it's just what happens to be going on in his life right now. Just listen to how dark the soundscape is, it's no celebration, its just facts.
