If we’re going to play the “rappers who also love puns” game it’s going to be hard to beat Sean Price. After all, you’d be going up against a man who named his albums Jesus Price Supastar and Kimbo Price. (Ironically, Big Pun didn’t really drop puns.) But Guy Harrison may be an emerging contender for the rap-pun crown with the release of new joint Who’s That Guy. A young Jersey representative currently splitting his time between textbooks and rhyme notebooks at Syracuse, Guy makes his DJBooth debut with Who’s That Guy?, a fitting title considering the opening sample and impossible to ignore beat from Tyler “TyCo” Costantino. It’s a beat that Guy uses to lyrically explain where he’s coming from and where he’s going: “You talkin bout that Backhand Fam kid? / I heard he blowin up on campus / not just his but other states too / but he rep that NJ on his license plates dude.” Fans eager to learn more about Guy’s identity should check out his upcoming album Train of Thought (any relation to Reflection Eternal’s classic album?) when it drops on July 13.
