Comprised of writers and producers Nyfe and Amada, closegood and their newest track, “Voicemail Poetry”, are a delightfully strange hip-hop treat with some serious lyricism.

“you said it was my fault
I was unhappy
sappy nappy headed girls
only get to be snap fingers
and lingering silence
only get to be jazz singer
or jerry springer bringer of violence
can’t be soft or tender
defender fending off temper
or justifiable cold
inside a prideful december
must be quiet remember
must be tickle-able
light as feather fall
tetherball to biblical dick”
