If fiery hip hop gets you through the 9-5, make Jazlyn Gold’s latest single, Rat Race, a playlist staple and gain the inspiration to escape. If any hustler hip hop track is going to shake you from your complacency, it is this up-vibe energetic attack on capitalism.
At just over 2-minutes long, it’s a short and sweet jazzy trap hit, but 2 minutes is all that was needed to implant a life-affirming seed of motivation to level up. Gold’s playfully dominant rap style is reflected in the lush reverb-heavy notes that add plenty of texture to the track that the 808s construct.
Rat Race is now available to stream via Spotify.
