A year ago, when Bones and the Sesh crew swung through The Korova, it truly was a force of nature. Bringing together the city’s hip-hop nerds and Tumblr-goths like some online pied piper, the basement of the building was about 15 degrees warmer than outdoors and the humidity levels made summertime in Houston seem refreshing. Over the last year, Bones hustled in the warrens of internet rap, releasing six mixtapes of dark, ambitious work. When he goes in with intention, his wan, ghostly bars are some of the best in hip-hop today — an anxious, minor trap lord fighting for his territory. He’s so good, in fact, that on a recent feature on A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP, Rocky kept him at arms length with a vocal sample of Bones’ “Dirt” instead of letting the young rapper get in and tear the track to shreds. On tour with the Seshollowaterboyz, the gig features the fierce support of Chris Travis, Xavier Wulf and Eddy Baker.
