Hi everyone, it’s me, it’s me, it’s SOTB back after a day off celebrating the Orioles’ home opener.
This one grabbed me because of the laidback flow PokeG Beats employed here, plus you don’t really get too many bangers where the artist refers to themselves as a Pokémon. Then again, it speaks to me because I’ve had quite a few anime and gamer references in my music over the years. And truth be told, that’s exactly what “Bitch I’m Pikachu” is: a certified banger with some dope quotables, a pretty in-depth rhyme scheme and nerdy references galore. Over the synthy beat, PokeG discusses who he is, why he raps and how he’s going to make his dreams come true. He says he’s Pikachu, but I definitely get some Ash vibes as well from this one. He seems destined to never give up, even when things get a bit chaotic.
Listening through a bit more of PokeG’s discography reveals that he’s a nerd rapper with lyrics and a decent amount of bangers. In other words, the brother reminds me of a certain “No-Fi King” who always preaches No Pain No Gain while hating idiots and their BS. I liked this one; it’s a solid introduction for me to PokeG because it’s lyrical, a vibe and all the other cool words writers like to use to discuss tracks they rock with. Check out the track above and support dope music in all its forms.
