Recent People Issue subject Nnamdi Ogbonnaya is a hip-hop head, so whenever he posts something related to rap on Facebook I make sure to click on it. Ogbonnaya just hooked me on "Achilles" from Twin Cities MC Allan Kingdom—the dude's wild flow on the tune is fascinating, and the way he delivers knotty verses makes it sound like big chunks of his rapping are being played in reverse. It's strange and a little hard to grasp at first, but I got hooked as soon as I heard Kingdom relax his flow for the spacey chorus. I've frequently returned to "Achilles" during the past week, which is why I selected it for today's 12 O'Clock Track. Check out the video after the jump and download it at Kingdom's Bandcamp page—it's part of his Talk to Strangers EP, which came out in July.
