Taken off the new EP from 2020 ‘Cheers to the Past‘, this is a formidable freestyle-type song that is such a bouncy listen.
‘What Now Freestyle‘ from emcee Shabazz Talib is one of the best flows of 2020 without doubt. This is a real story that is portrayed through a man who now knows what he wants. He is done over thinking about the world and just wants to make music and be happy.
The Newark, NJ native is in full form here. His flows are tight and the wordsmith is in an imperious mood here. He is sick and tired of dusting off those cobwebs off the past and doesn’t want to get bitten by those pesky spiders. He wants to be in a clear mind so that he can project his best work now. The past is in the past. The future is here.
‘What Now Freestyle‘ from the Newark emcee Shabazz Talib has one of the best beats and flows of the year on this one. In such a saturated market full of rappers, this is something fresh and real. It’s made for those true fans who appreciate a proper song for once and no mumbling garbage. This is what Hip Hop in 2020 should sound like.
