You don't have to be a so-called "old-head" to appreciate a song like Sy Ari Da Kid, J.I.D., and EarthGang's "New Malcolm X." Clocking in at a little over six minutes, the third track on Sy Ari's Better Safe Than Sy Ari album is essentially an odyssey of bars, with each rapper taking their time and delivering extensive, lyrically amazing verses. Sy Ari sets it off, holding it down with a grounded flow as he likens himself to the "New Malcolm X." J.I.D. slides through next, showcasing his effortless flow over some smooth saxophones.
This one is heavy on the vintage OutKast vibes, especially when EarthGang step to the mic to close it out, spitting bars like "whose lyin, kill a lion, wear his body like a Snuggie, hot fresh hemoglobin warm the skin of a druggie, and all these fuckers placed around me all pretendin' they love me." If you're looking to lose yourself in the art of lyricism, look no further than this one.
Whose lyin, kill a lion, wear his body like a Snuggie
Hot fresh hemoglobin warm the skin of a druggie
And all these fuckers placed around me all pretending they love me
