On “Out Here,” Cali artist Leon Ross essentially creates something you’d hear on NBA 2K23, which isn’t a bad thing at all; it just feels custom-made for the next 2K game. That’s the main reason why I like this one; it has a lot of basketball-related punchlines and lyrics, while still having an edge to it so that it doesn’t come off corny or cheesy. However, that’s not all “Out Here” has to offer. On top of the basketball raps, the brother’s got a healthy helping of bars and his flow kind of reminds me of early-era Ludacris. It’s loud and boisterous, but still warming and humorous at the same time. All in all, the overall presentation of the song is flame emojis throughout.
This one appears on Ross’s ROSS EP, which just dropped last week. If you’re in the mood for some rap that’s a bit sports-inspired while not alienating those of us out there who aren’t into the NBA like that, this is one you should add to your playlists.
