EST Gee – “Funk Flex Freestyle”
The initially moment of EST Gee’s “Funk Flex Freestyle” is unbelievably awkward. It’s not completely very clear if EST Gee is familiar with Funk Flex or vice versa, and they have this odd little chat the place Flex gauges if he’s far too optimistic about Covid-19 vaccinations, although EST Gee just doesn’t reply and (I think) is transfixed by his very own reflection in Funk Flex’s bald head. But that uneasiness disappears as soon as the conquer drops and the Louisville rapper locks into his convenience zone: “They know they simply cannot engage in us, niggas died they deliver my identify up/And remember to never call my phone ’bout coppin’ deuces I’m gon’ hang up/And I’ll continue to get energetic with no mask forget about I’m well known,” he raps on the opening strains. His blend of vivid storytelling and road politics reminds me of the late Bankroll Contemporary. The freestyle is not prolonged more than enough, but there’s not a line wasted. Sad to say, Gee didn’t get any of the signature Flex facial reactions, additional proving my concept that they have no strategy who each and every other are.
With artists releasing tracks at a quick and furious tempo, it’s challenging for the ordinary hip-hop head to retain keep track of of it all—no subject how tapped in they are. That is why we made The Kinds, a day by day write-up to spotlight the song you require to hear.
