Rain910 Brings The Thunder On The Latest Funkmaster Flex Freestyle (Video)
From the same city of Fayetteville, North Carolina as J. Cole, Rain910 has been grinding just as long. The 2015 Ambrosia For Heads Spotlight artist has worked with Cory Gunz and Paul Wall, in between some standout performances at the BET Hip Hop Awards in years past.
Appearing on Funkmaster Flex’s freestyle video series, Rain storms with the bars. Within, he blends stories, street game, and personal reflections. There are commanding punchlines and a fiery delivery. At one point, shortly after 2:00, he pays homage to Big Pun’s famous Little Italy rhyme routine, before breaking into his own:
“I’m reppin’ for something big, I’m feelin’ like Lil’ Cease / With little room to breathe / My juniors in the mafia, them kids gotta eat / They took over your block, now them kids got a street / The past few months, I done been outta reach / My lil’ homie sold a half a brick to police / Pictures at the car lot with him right beside me / Left with nothing, couldn’t find something that defines me / My girl said she wants a family like the Cosby’s / But she wasn’t Claire / And me, I wasn’t there.”
In the verse, Rain910 spits a line about stepping to Nicki Minaj in Philly. This freestyle hits social media the same morning that the YMCMB MC confirmed her break-up with Meek Mill.
