The last time we posted a Tsu Surf track on HNHH, the New Jersey battle rapper had teamed up with Wale for a thrilling offering called "Red Dresses." Now Tsu is back with a brand new, HumBeats-produced track entitled "Lawd."
Led by a mournful-but-relaxed flute loop, "Lawd" is deceptively chill, with a slow tempo and tranquil instrumental belying Tsu's emotive, deep storytelling. Showing his ability to weave in interesting rhyme schemes and metaphors on lines like "These winters be Nova Scotia, I hold it closer," Tsu Surf proves he can slow it down and dominate the lyrical playing field, even if it's outside of a battle rapping context.
These winters be Nova Scotia, I hold it closer
What you drink? I'll take some Henny and a cold mimosa
Few questions, and I'm guessin' you where I come for closure
Better we had this talk now, 'cause I'm a little older
