“Neon” is the latest release from Martin, who is creating an alternative hip-hop universe in which he combines music, live action film, and his original 2D animated characters, such as Cloud the mouse. Over an airy, arcade-inspired instrumental produced by SpydaWebs, Martin weaves vibrant descriptions of movement and color into his bars to bring his lucid dreams to life.
