Tsu Surf is a respected battle rapper, but unlike his peers, he demonstrates both songwriting ability and an ear for beats. With more money being put into the battle rap scene everyday, it makes sense for Surf to stick with the scene, but making the transition to being music-first likely woudn't be too hard for him.
His latest track finds him paired with fellow technical rapper JUJU. Each drops a verse that would sound at home over a beat or on the floor of a competition. Grab Tsu's mixtape from last year, Tsu Me which features guest appearances from Wale, Trev Rich, and more.
You don't got no money
Don't get in no beef
'Cause this is the streets, we playin' for keeps
Swing for your block any day of the week
Tear some shit up, then I'm leaving the scene
