I’d never heard of Phenomeinal before he submitted “Black Mamba” to me. That said, anyone who references Kobe Bryant through their music wins for me. Released yesterday (Mamba Day), the track is a throwback to boombap lyricism while paying homage to the late legend. His rhyme schemes are solid and his lyricism is on point. Like Kobe, the rhymesayer steps back and fires his bars with precision. And like Kobe, the track helps put Phenomeinal in some rarefied air because of its punchy lyricism and boombap sensibilities. Check out the track above via Spotify and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
