Logic- Walk On By
DMV rapper Logic dropped off a new joint yesterday, and it’s got some sick production from C-Sick. Not to mention Logic, who brings his usual array of bars about his come-up in the game. He’s working on a new mixtape, so expect more content from the rapper in the near future. Hopefully it’s up to a similar standard.
King Chip- WTF I Want To
We haven’t been getting much music lately from one of my favorite Cleveland rappers, King Chip. This cut appeared on an illRoots mixtape, and it’s classic Chip style. His laid-back flow is perfect over the beat, as he reminisces (similar to Logic) about back-in-the-day. Chip has a knack for spitting the realest shit possible. My only problem with this track is a) length (1 min 41 sec) and b) tags. Maybe we’ll get a more full/tagless version in the future.
The Pro Era leader leaked this track which features Chance The Rapper recently. The jazzy beat finds Joey rapping honestly about two ladies, Wendy and Becky, whom he asks to respect him (of course, after they’re done licking his testes). Both rappers spit in a very casual way, almost as if they’re just chilling and talking to the listener. It’s some good ish.
Caskey- The Killer Intro
Caskey is a rapper who signed to YMCMB over the past year, and this song appeared on his first mixtape since singing with the label (No Complaints). I’m honestly not sure how I feel about Caskey himself—the mixtape wasn’t too impressive, but this song stood out. The beat is dope (produced by Kyle McClellan). Caskey definitely has a unique voice, which may not go over well with everyone, but nonetheless I’ll give him props for this intro.
