Throughout 2017, R-Mean has been consistently delivering new music every Monday, like clockwork. Today, we receive the penultimate offering of the movement, an old-school banger called "The Come Up." The Komplex produced track finds R-Mean giving a shout-out to his "Day Ones," reflecting on his career with some clever punchlines and introspective lyricism. If you haven't been following R-Mean's ambitious vision, "The Come Up" is a solid starting point, especially if you're a frequent user of the term "real hip-hop." While R-Mean has proven to be a versatile emcee, he's at his best when he gets to go in over some boom-bap drums.
"Started from the bottom, now we boss on cigars," raps R-Mean. "Heavy I keep stealing the show, should charge me with larceny." Check it out, and stay tuned for next week, when the "Mean Monday" movement comes to a close. R-Mean deserves some props for the commitment, and he really came through with over fifty new tracks every single week. That in and of itself is an impressive feat.
Always keep on rockin' even though ain't no guitar with me
Swimmin' with these sharks, smelling blood, what if Jaws get me?
Started from the bottom, now we boss on cigars
Heavy I keep stealing the show, should charge me with larceny
