Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede Kicks An Amazing Freestyle & It’s Deeper Than Rap (Video)
Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede is one of the game’s more consistent lyricists. Without losing a breath, the seasoned Bronx, New York veteran delivers an incredible fast-flow verse, firing off bars like an automatic weapon with a “broken safety.” Using an intricate, multi-syllabic rhyme scheme and his signature highly-coded poetic wordplay, Suede references some of the uglier aspects of street life in its first half: “Down the block is your fate, around the corner’s your destiny, the boulevard’s your graveyard — the avenue’s stabbin’ back at you.”
The deceptively uplifting freestyle switches gears around the 50 second mark, however, with Suede conveying a message of “rehabilitation” and “transformation,” inspired in part by last week’s Ambrosia For Heads piece on TRAP House — a Hartford, Connecticut “business incubator” for former hustlers that aims to help turn their lives around by applying skills acquired in the drug game to legal business endeavors.
