The sh*tty thing about being a rapper/producer is that, on occasion, you have to watch another emcee blaze one of your best instrumentals. For example, though Hit-Boy wasn’t about to pass up the chance at a production credit on Jay-Z‘s Magna Carta… Holy Grail, the Cali repper was so attached to his SomeWhereInAmerica beat that he simply had to give it a test-drive. On this unofficial remix, Hit-Boy jumps on his and Mike Dean‘s brash horn riffs and pensive piano loops to celebrate his clique’s successes and smash on his critics in a confident opening 16. MMG rhymesayer Rockie Fresh takes aim at his competition on the back, spitting, “Jerry Sandusky wouldn’t even feel these boys.” This freestyle isn’t attached to a larger project, but fans can find the LP version of SomeWhereInAmerica on Hov’s latest full-length, available now in stores and online.
