COMPLAINT contains all the magic that Watsky fans have come to love – whip-smart lyricism, acrobatic rapping, and a bent for balancing intellect and poignance with whimsy and wit – all while continuing to expand on the sonic sphere he occupies. An incredibly varied set, COMPLAINT follows 2016’s x Infinity which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Rap Albums Chart and gained critical acclaim from NPR, SF Chronicle, Stereogum, Billboard, Alternative Press and more. x Infinity came just months after Watsky’s debut essay collection How To Ruin Everything (Penguin/Random House) hit shelves and became a New York Times Bestseller.
