King Los May Be A Freestyles & Songwriter Double-Threat (Video)
The freestyle is its own animal. So many of the masters of improvisational rhyme in Hip-Hop have proven to struggle in making thoughtful, lyrically-sharp albums—at least by the people’s standards. King Los has everybody in suspense as he takes his strong track record from the freestyle and mixtape circuits to a studio LP.
Although details are forthcoming beyond a title (God, Money, War), the longtime Puff Daddy protege shows polish, poise, and promise in “War,” assisted by Marsha Ambrosius. The song does not lose any momentum in the fiery diamond-cut bars the Baltimore, Maryland is known for. Only this time, he throws those onto serious, real-life issues, and makes a conflict-record that’s more than just a sheer skill display.
Could King Los join Xzibit, Eminem, and Sean Price as a freestyle phenom capable of making a lasting long player?
