For King Chip, simply being fresh to death isn’t sufficient; he also wants to look maximally fly for his journey into the next world. On Fresh at My Funeral, the Cleveland representative makes a solemn request to homies who outlive him: “Light my Air Max up before you drop the casket.” K. Roosevelt mans the boards on this stylish mixtape single, serving up an airy, synth-driven instrumental as Chip contrasts his hard-knock adolescence with his current position of power in the game. Windy City spitter GLC shows off his ride on verse two, and Pittsburgh representative Chevy Woods likens himself to baller John Wall in a caked-up closing contribution. Clevelafornia remains unscheduled but, as always, you can stay tuned to The DJBooth for fresh singles and release details.
