Here’s the catch about Freestyles; you don’t get a pen and paper, you don’t get time to awaken your alter ego and you definitely don’t get the luxury of a do-over. It’s just you, your raw thoughts and your voice against the world! The stakes are real here. If anything, delivering a freestyle for an audience is one of the most daunting things one can do. With that being said, we pledge allegiance to who do it and do it well (or even just moderately)…like Drew The MC.
There’s more than one way to look at the first 30 seconds when the rapper repeats the phrase “pull up, yeah”. You could perceive it as the divine moment in which the rapper gets ready to serve, or as a pure killing of time. This track is definitely something! From the onset when he says “Hello everybody…” it is a roller coaster ride and you just don’t know what will hit you next. Highs, lows and moderates – its all in there. Also, what’s a rap without the rapper breaking into a braggadocious chant, and without the occasional taking of a heavy one on one’s rivals!
When Drew says he’s a lyrical criminal, I can’t help but wonder “where’s the lie?” Sure, this might not be something you can cue up on a daily basis or something you’d play on your own, but it’s definitely something. Its a beyond passable joint.
In conclusion, here’s an expression that should be used more often; “He rides the beat like he’s Mad Max”!
