If every rapper has an origin story, Guapdad 4000's is that of a scammer. Having transitioned from a lifestyle of finessing and deception into one of bars and beats, the Oakland rapper has come a long way in only a few short years. Now, following a major break as a key player on the J. Cole-led Revenge Of The Dreamers 3 compilation album, Guap has been steadily proving his worth as a solo artist. One who has revealed versatility time and again, once more with the release of his new single "Lil Scammer That Could."
Currently released in select international markets, Guap's latest finds him taking to James Delgado's production with a noted sense of aggression. There's a chip on his shoulder, and given how affable he tends to be, it's somewhat jarring to hear. Yet not entirely unsuccessful, as it imbues his words with a certain urgency that's kind of refreshing -- if a little less refined than usual. Throw in an additional verse from the ever-consistent Denzel Curry, who keeps that reputation alive here, and we've got another strong offering on our hands.
I know I can, I go again, these n***s is annoying
I'm flexinG, I flexed on them, rub it in like ointment
They throwin' bands at my bitch, my ego is enormous
Gigantic, I see your antics, you an informant
