Hip-hop's Gangster and Gentleman Styles P, aka the Ghost, aka Pinero, has proven his longevity time and time again. With countless collaborations, including tracks with Biggie, Jay-Z, DMX, and more, S.P has established himself as a dominant, if occasionally unsung, lyrical force in the game. From The Lox's rise until now, Styles has continuously kept his discography stacked, culminating in his most recent album S.P The GOAT: Ghost Of All Time. As he promised, Styles makes sure the bars flow heavy, bringing forth fellow lyricists Jadakiss and Nino Man for the standout "Deadman."
"Rap styles impeccable, I'm an intellectual," spits Styles, over the grimiest woodwind flip in recent memory. "But I don't give a shit bout the hammer you got next to you." Both sides of his dual-faceted persona are on full display, as he effortlessly lays it down alongside his longstanding D-Block partner. Jadakiss matches his energy with a dose of OG wisdom, once again dropping some knowledge on the street-ready youths. "Never let em' know what you thinking or where you rest at," he raps, before passing the mic to the homie Nino Man. "you getting a couple of dollars you should invest that."
Be sure to catch Ghost Of All Time right here, and respect to Styles for bringing the bars out once again.
In the kitchen whippin', my man, he like, "Stretch that"
Bars like I'm braidin' short hair, you gotta catch that
Never let 'em know what you thinkin' or where you rest at
You gettin' a couple of dollars, you should invest that
Gettin' rid of work and the music is what I'm best at
