Despite a long hiatus, Brooklyn rapper and sometimes actor Stro just dropped fire on Soundcloud. On "Only On Apps," the lyrical phenom shreds the mic on a minimalist beat while going after mumble rap.
Stro mocks people living in a superficial, make-believe, digital world. His flow moves with eerie effortlessness picking up the pace to deliver the hook like rapid fire. And despite the speed, he enunciates words clearly putting the listener in an almost trance-like state. It's like watching bullet time.
The former X-Factor contestant hasn't released a project since Best By Far a year ago, but "Only On Apps" is the first single from his new series The Flood.
I get shit for free, fuck a salary
Matter of fact, take it back. Love a salary
Stack the tree, I can live happily
But I do it for the youngins coming after me
Leave a whole lotta A&Rs mad at me
Cause I be coming at mumble rap constantly
It ain't hard to see, that shit haunting me
Niggas talking about clothes productively
Need to put a spin on it like lingerie
