Reason Shows He Stands With TDE’s Finest By Freestyling On Kendrick & Jay Rock Beats
Top Dawg Entertainment artist Reason has proven that he has bars, but he’s also shown that he can use his lyrical ability to make great music as well. He showcased such ability on 2017’s There You Have It, an independent project which was remastered and re-released earlier this year by TDE. The yearning to freestyle hasn’t left the latest addition to the championship squad. H recently stopped by Los Angeles’ Power 106 to kick some bars for the L.A. Leakers.
After a short intro, the Carson, California native got busy, and quickly. He decided to being with going the braggadocio route. “Had to hustle with the quickest precision,” Reason raps over fellow Top Dawg MC Kendrick Lamar’s instrumental for “Element.” “Now it’s toast ’cause we made it ni**a, off them blocks in the hood / And now it’s Jill Scott, the top lookin’ good / From the bottom but headed high / A couple ni**as takin’ shots, we let it slide.”
Later, the beat switched over to Jay Rock’s “Parental Advisory” and Reason decided to give his Rap crew some shine. “F*ck all that aimin’ for chest, we head hunters,” he raps. “TDE in your city got the industry scared of us / Look that ain’t braggin’ that’s just straight facts done leveled up / I got my pockets gaining weight back they blowin’ paper.”
Earlier this month, Reason dropped a video for his song “Colored Dreams.” In November, he was featured in a XXL magazine freestyle video as a part of their “What I Do” series and interestingly focused on women and his relationship with them. “Mom’s been preaching lately how I should respect women,” he raps. “But, mama, they don’t respect their own.” Reason was also a part of October’s BET Hip-Hop Awards cyphers, joining Flawless Real Talk of Providence, Rhode Island, Casanova of Brooklyn, Shawn Smith of West Philadelphia, and Phora from Los Angeles.
