A couple of weeks back we got the lead single off Symba's upcoming album -- an Iamsu!-assisted West Coast banger -- which we quickly took quite a liking to. Today, he's back with the follow-up, switching his production style from the Bay Area knock of "How You Rockin" to a more textural sound.
"We Ready" creeps along steadily, as some sampled and heavily filtered vocals play throughout, serving as a contrasting earworm to Symba's hard rhymes. That is, until the rapper busts out some melodies himself, proving himself as a strong singer and hook-writer.
Symba some thoughts on the song's message via email; “‘We Ready' is a hustler’s anthem, it’s basically saying we ready to take on whatever is in our way, to get to where we wanna be, we don’t care what it is -We Ready for it.”
Look out for his new album, 2 More Words, to drop September 4th.
Can't waste time, nigga getting closer to God
Gotta see life 'fore I die
I just wanna live, on stage with a couple Ms
Girl at the crib with a kid
But 'til then, God pull me out of my sins
