Yesterday, Dreamville's JID dropped off DiCaprio 2, further solidifying his position among the game's upper echelon lyricists. Naturally, the project boasts a variety of highlights, including previously highlighted selections "Slick Talk" and "Hot Box," which features Method Man and Joey Bada$$. Now, it seems right to shed some light on the A$AP Ferg assisted "Westbrook," which stands triumphant as the album's most ostensibly aggressive track. Off the bat, the Christo produced banger conjures an atmosphere of tension, in which Ferg delivers brash vocals over an imposing brass arrangement. The energy pulls back for the verse, though never truly dissipates; JID spits accordingly, flexing over an up-tempo, mischevious instrumental.
That is, until, the brass returns. From that moment on JID, matches Ferg's intensity, spazzing with declarations of imminent destruction. In tandem with his previous bouts of lyrical havoc, it's enough to cause even the most stoic individual to twist into fits of involontary mean-mugging. Of course, astute listeners will recall JID's lyrics, having already heard the verse in the XXL Freshman class; rest assured it has lost none of its luster, sounding even better this time around. Be sure to support JID by copping that DiCaprio 2 joint NOW.
I bled words 'till my head would hurt
The first to say, it hurts to say, I said it first
Live life like a baby that was dead at birth
But came alive and fucked the nurses
If you don't like it tell a n***a "jump" if you feelin' Kermit
If you sleepin' on me we can make it permanent
And leave 'em stinkin, he really permeate, he really reeking
