When it comes to being a Winner, believing in oneself may not be the whole battle (case in point, Charlie Sheen), but it’s a damn good start. Making its world premiere on our front page, the inaugural leak off DJBooth.net and PUMA‘s forthcoming compilation EP is a testament to the power of perception to shape reality; over Reef‘s gritty, guitar-laced sample work, bumping in the background, Philadelphia fast-riser (and freestyle series alum) Gilbere Forte’ addresses those who may not have heard his name before, forecasting his future greatness in verses that prove his sky-high self-confidence justified: “I’m looking up in the sky to see if God knows the destiny that I chose: to be the leader of the life of those who lack souls.” Fellow Philly repper (and freestyle contributor) Freeway sums it all up on the back: “I’m a winner not because y’all n*ggas losers, but I’m a winner simply ‘cause that’s what I choose to be.” If this determination-drenched banger whets your appetite for further freshness, keep it locked; due out July 25, the Uncontested EP will feature original material from Emilio Rojas, Laws, Spree Wilson, Sir Michael Rocks and more!
