Stepping to the mic, Reason wastes little time in establishing his presence. Kicking things off with a reimagined variation of Kendrick Lamar's own rhyme scheme, Reason takes to "Element" with the confidence of a true wordsmith. "Street smart like I'm rolling with some scholars," he raps, in the opening stanzas, "n***as folding, money piling, bread older than nostalgia." From that point on, clever bars and punchlines arrive on a nonstop basis, as Reason delivers an onslaught over his labelmate's instrumental. 

"It's getting scary, just see what the West cravin'," spits Reason, sliding through with a Wes Craven reference for the slowpokes. He doesn't stop there. "Words electric I came with an ill flow, not sick an ill flow, but electric, an eel flow," he raps, his delivery on point to the fullest. It doesn't end there, as the Leakers queue up Jay Rock's "Parental Advisory" for him to body. And rest assured, he does exactly that.

In case you missed Reason's recent album There You Have It, be sure to peep that right here. Though it's technically his debut as a TDE signee, the album itself was recorded and released prior to the deal, making it technically a reissued drop. Still, it's clear that Reason is gearing up to make a massive splash on the game, and we can only hope his new project arrives sooner than later. Peep the bars, and watch one of the most exciting new lyricists at work.
