I don’t know who this guy is, but he’s damn good. Be warned: He’s a thug. This is a tape about dealing drugs, beating people up, and generally being an asshole. Stizz is from Boston, and he’s got that “little urban” mentality—this is the voice of guys who never get off the corner, never stop hustling, and don’t even dream much bigger than that. “I speak of shit that I don’t know,” he says. And it seems to be true.
But he knows a lot. Yeah, there’s swagger and bravado here—and not much in the way of insight—but he paints a clear picture of a place, a person, a way of life. “This for the people. Follow me and I’ll lead you. Don’t let ‘em deceive you….They claim to be kings but nothing they do is regal.” That’s from “Talk,” which is just a long, sing-song rap that keeps going on and on like that. He’s got vocabulary, he’s got delivery, he can say stuff you’ve heard before in a way that makes you hear it differently.
Truly an amazing mixtape.
