Baltimore’s Score|Swayze (who I recently learned is a fellow City College graduate) rapped over a “Sweetest Taboo” chop and called it “Pretty Boy Blanka.” That should be all you need to know about why this one gets an SOTBMusic post. It appeals to the gamer nerd and the music nerd in me. That aside, the track is hot.
The video starts off with a “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” intro before quickly burning that away to give us the feature presentation. Swayze’s love of bass along with a matter-of-fact delivery kept me guessing where he’d go next. From Street Fighter references to money bars to “don’t push me” bravado and back to nerdy, this one grabbed my attention from the jump. That’s before Swayze’s feature, Kay L.A., came onto the track. Her addition, however, was the chef’s kiss to put this one over the top as she complements Swayze’s nerdy opulence. Check it out below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
Oh and Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat.
