Lil Webb: A Twenties “Whoracle”

The Whoring Twenties

In essence, The Roaring Twenties really were “The Whoring Twenties.” I give you excess and new money and beautiful young people in a burning but bleak world, drunkenly cackling on the doorstep of impending war and even more carnage. Let’s distract and numb ourselves and call it what it is, equal parts numbing and basking. Time is indeed a flat circle (word to Rust Cohle), and history appears to be repeating itself as the whoring twenties are upon us again. Lil Webb waxes poetic as the “Whoracle” overseeing it all like a Gotham (Baltimore) gargoyle, in the form of an eclectic nihilist with a doobie and a banger of a new album.

Local (& Global) Politics

Webb ties his overarching themes together surgically in a few instances in particular. Off rip, on “Local Politics”, as Webb reiterated in a recent conversation we had:

“This Black Op is sponsored by your local politicians!” Alongside close friend and Down By Law member DSkillz Harris, Webb and company take us to militia training camp. From the monetary exchanges for bombastic raps to the firing squad-inspired hook to the explosive instrumental supplied by Kasino Kam, the tension builds as war preparations are met. “Lana Rhoades” is appropriately titled, and I’ll let you do your own investigating regarding how this one fits into the greater scheme of things (lol). He recruited me for “Wednesday” which makes all of the sense because I’m a lush who enjoys partying in the middle of the week and being morbidly self-destructive.

On “Lawn Grass” he enlists our tour buddy Marley B. to continue the night on the town, this time with DefREE production straight from Russia (no stranger to…you get it). LAST CALL all must get in where they fit in, drinks poured, smoke fills the air, and we party for the ones we have lost. We get more conceptual heat rocketry and unifying (or dividing depending on how you’re looking at this) threads with “Voice Lessons”, more or less saying that those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it, BUT those who don’t learn the basics of art can never truly make it. He delves into diction, warming up with scales, and showcases his classic vocal training.

Life Imitating Art

This “Whoracle” showcases Webb’s aforementioned eclecticism from front to back, while musically tying into the premise of The Whoring Twenties generationally as everyone found themselves in everything. This project finds musicianship and concept intimately tied to the artist, a gifted musician and stage performer delivering an inebriated but sobering narrative with equal parts conviction and apathy. Make sure you keep up with Lil Webb on socials and wherever you grab music.
