Nostalgia has emerged as a dominant theme in contemporary music, ranging from hip-hop to indie. Today, Chris Rivers comes through with a smooth throwback jam sure to please children of the nineties. Throughout his recent freestyle series, Rivers has often delivered high-octane lyricism with emphasis on--and be sure to pronounce this in a Funk Flex cadence-- "bars." With "You The Man," Rivers opts for a more subdued delivery, instead waxing poetic about the come-up.
"I just wanted someone to hold me, can't get that shit from the homies," raps Rivers, "but they hold me down like density does, I never mentally loved myself enough." While it's worth nothing that Rivers has lyricism in his blood, the young son of Pun is more than capable of standing on his own. If you're looking for lyricism, do yourself a favor and don't sleep on Chris Rivers.
I'm supersizing my logic minimizing my heart
It's a difference of seeing colors or acknowledging art
It's strictly procreation here, like you got on the ark
