Sometimes hip-hop heads need someone to spotlight the gritty, raw, authentic rap that seems to get lost among Drake freestyles and club hits. Today, I Am That guy. The latest feature from Freak Tha Monsta will soon have those club rappers running for the exits. The Booth newcomer pulls double duty on this hostile jam. He cooks up a briskly paced, bone-chilling beat led by a sliced vocal sample (DJ Kwestion provides additional cuts.) and douses it in gasoline, igniting it with his fiery, barbed flow. Apathy, never one to miss a beat bloodbath, gets a few shots in on the guest tip. I Am That is slated for inclusion on the Bronx native’s forthcoming EP, Jackson Brolick.
