Now, at the risk of being blackballed by every big rapper and writer in the game, this ain’t one I can recommend in good conscience.
Markman’s latest single, “Hit My Line,” is kind of…how can I put this?
I don’t know if he’s attempting to parody mid-2000s Loverman raps (even down to the phone number shoutout) or if he’s seriously thinking this is the best way to get his girl’s attention. Either way, it’s not really that good of a track. I get the message. Said message is something along the lines of “I’m not trash. Give me your time, baby, and here’s my number to call when you get your ish together.” I can rock with it. However, the execution is flawed to me. The beat feels very mid-2000s, and the “sexy” raps are kind of like LL on “Baby.”
Still, if you want to check it out, here it is.
