Styles P Does Not Stop for a Breather. He Releases 2 New Freestyles (Audio)
Last week, Styles P delivered four new freestyles, each of which highlighted different facets of the Yonkers, New York MC’s gifted vocabulary. His most recent solo album came in the form of 2015’s A Wise Guy and a Wise Guy, but many Heads have developed a fondness for his lyrical abilities as an extemporaneous lyricist. Fresh off the success of his stellar performance on Black Thought’s “Making a Murderer,” the Lox member continues to put forth consistently dope material that may or may not be indicative of a forthcoming album of his own.
Today, he has released two new freestyles, getting busy on Kanye West’s “Famous” and Bryson Tiller’s “Don’t.” On the first, he enlists his longtime friend and collaborator Sheek Louch, whose Silverback Gorilla 2 he discussed in great detail with Ambrosia for Heads. The two put it down fully for D-Block, with Styles saying “maybe I can box, but I don’t wanna wrastle/thinkin’ bout your curly hair, braids or your afro/fit it in your snapback, your forehead will crackle and then snap and pop” before the track breaks down into a sampling of Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam.” On his flip of “Don’t,” Styles’ flow dominates the comparatively subdued beat, making for yet another example of why he’s one of the most versatile spitters in the game.
