Midwestern rapper, Karras channels the grit of classic hip-hop through a lens of off-kilter surrealism

With his feet planted in two worlds, midwestern rapper Karras marries the mystical and manifest, to create a lens into his fever-dream-like world.

“Blades Of Grass” is an introductory track from his upcoming debut album, entitled Karrasmatic. While on the surface it might sounds like a classic braggadocio type weed track, the lyrics are really about perseverance to overcome a fear of failure.

“While visiting two of my best friends in Portland, Oregon, we smoked some very strong weed and went hiking on a mountain,” explains Karras when talking about the backstory of the single. “They insisted on taking a rather steep shortcut along the trail that gave me a dose of adrenaline and anxiety. With my heart still racing, I wrote the majority of these lyrics standing on the top of the mountain overlooking an expansive horizon.”


Look out for Karras’ debut album Karrasmatic (set to be released in 2021).
