Well, damn. That’s all I’ve got to say about this one. I love that this one is partly bombastic braggy rap and partly “the culture is not meant to be played with.” The bars? Impeccable. The beat? Boombappy enough to make the rap rap fans happy, but a trunkrattler to keep those types happy as well.
Hip-Hop, even at 50, has a lot of fakeness, culture vultures, not-so-safe-for-work philosophies and people who want to push the negatives. Don’t get me wrong: I like early Lil Baby like everyone else. That said, I can’t just go around spouting off early Lil Baby verses at work (well, at least not my work). That said, there’s got to be a balance between the mentally-elevated and the “still in the trenches” rap. Songs like this push for that balance, while also telling those who are in rap just for the money to kick rocks. I’m definitely here for that energy, as that same energy is present on everything I’ve heard from Shaheed and DJ Supreme.
