Florida rap has been bubbling for the last few years, introducing some of the top up-and-comers in Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, Denzel Curry, the late XXXTentacion, and more. Miami has been steadily becoming a hub for growing rappers, housing some of the biggest names in underground hip-hop. While he's received a decent amount of national exposure, Pouya can be considered one of the leaders of Florida's underground scene. He quietly releases a bunch of quality music every year and his diehard fans love him for it. He came through last night with an ode to his "Florida Thang," spitting rapid-fire over an MTM beat.
The beat is incredibly wavy on this one and Pouya does it justice. His distorted vocals are layered with several harmonies the entire way through, offering a few different perspectives to complete the ordeal. What do you think of his latest song?
Back then you was holdin' my gun
These days you the one I gotta run away from
You a heartbreaker, my lil’ Florida thang
Got me hangin' out the window just yellin' your name
When I see you I'ma ride right by
But when I need you I'ma bang your line cause
I don’t wanna be alone
Everybody needs somebody when they get alone
