The Ultimate is a song of epic proportions. With a dazzling instrumental by Precize, this track is the rap equivalent to a Nascar victory lap. Off industry tastemaker Johnny Shipes’ GOODTALK Vol. 9 ‘No Cosigns Needed’ mixtape, The Ultimate is a posse cut featuring sweet 16s from several big names. Let’s start with the chorus: Smoke DZA does the honors, serving up a motivational hook that builds the momentum for each emcee. Verse-wise, hot commodities Mickey Factz, Cory Gunz, and Curren$y all spazz on this one, showcasing why they were toted as the future of rap by XXL last year. The Hot Spitta (Curren$y) drops a particularly ill verse: “Hot Spitta’s that s**t/them ni**as got that Ferris Bueller flow/ they pretending they really ain’t sick.” After that lyrical melee, Booth newcomer Nakim closes out the track with a decent verse but honestly, they should have let Curren$y go last. Regardless of the order, The Ultimate lives up to its title, so if you’re feeling this one, make sure to download No Cosigns Needed when it drops in March.
