Ahh, you can always count on hip-hop for a good old flip of a classic record. Queens native AASIM uses a Treepees sample to share his scattered thoughts on the self-produced new song, If I Could Say What’s On My Mind. And when we say scattered, we mean exactly that, as the NYC emcee speaks on everything from his relationship with his mother (and women in general) to drinking 40s during his younger days. AASIM made it clear on his Twitter that he doesn’t want to be known as a “spitta,” but after listening to this record it is hard to say otherwise. If I Could Say What’s On My Mind will be featured on his forthcoming mixtape Walking on the Stars, which will also feature the Nasty Nas assisted previous feature, Queens Sh*t, set to drop May 21.
