In today’s hip-hop game, few can plausibly claim to have the sheer lyrical prowess of a Christopher Wallace or a Tupac Shakur. Implausible claims, on the other hand, are abound. Refreshingly, DJ Khaled‘s latest single doesn’t feature Rick Ross, Meek Mill, T.I., Diddy and Swizz Beatz comparing their skills to those of the aforementioned greats. When they say, “I Feel Like Tupac, I Feel Like Biggie,” the intended tone is more paranoid than braggadocious. Over Beat Bully‘s scorching trap boardwork, the formidable guests fret about the numerous foes lurking around every corner, fixing to turn them into hip-hop martyrs. Perhaps that’s what Khaled meant when he titled his next full-length “Suffering for Success.” Fans can, of course, keep their browsers locked for the latest on the forthcoming set, which is scheduled to drop October 22, via Cash Money/Republic.
