Featured in January along with Brian Storm‘s official visuals, Locksmith‘s House of Games freestyle found him delivering relentless bars over an ominous boom-bap instrumental co-produced by himself and Mike Blankenship. While House of Games II is presented as a sequel, you could just as well think of it as a remix. In addition to the headliner’s hard-hitting rhymes and eerie boardwork, this jam packs a tightly-wound guest 16 from Lock’s Nature Sounds buddy, R.A. The Rugged Man. Fans will be able to find House of Games II and many more bangers on Locksmith’s next independent full-length, the currently-unscheduled A Thousand Cuts. Additionally, watch for the emcee to participate in the DJBooth Freestyle Series when it resumes at the top of March.
Update: We have added the Brian Storm co-directed visuals for Locksmith’s House of Games II single.
