First things first: if you, like me, could go the rest of your life without hearing another screech from Axl Rose, feel free to breathe a sigh of relief; Gunz & Rozes, the inaugural leak from East Coast emcee Feroz‘s forthcoming street album, has absolutely nothing to do with the rock group of (almost) the same name. In actuality, the cut finds the Booth newcomer and Bronx motormouth Cory Gunz teaming up to blaze a beat off Diplo and Switch‘s recent collaborative album as Major Lazer. Backed by the hypnotically driving staccato-guitar beat from Santigold-assisted single Hold the Line, Gunz and Faroz deliver rapid-fire bars packed with vivid braggadocio and trash talk, the latter bringing the track to a close with the lines “My tongue’s a desert eagle, every day I’m poppin’ lead off/ This was the warning shot; next time I’ll take your head off.” To hear the emcee make good on that promising threat (or is it a threatening promise?), grab a copy of his Invisible Man mixtape when it hits the ‘net in February.
