Considering it hasn’t even been a month since Neako brought us his reader-acclaimed reimagining of Lords of the Underground classic Chief Rocka, I think it’s safe to assume the Jersey native and his accomplishments are fresh in readers’ memory, But hey, there’s nothing wrong with being reminded – at least when said reminder is as fresh as newly-leaked mixtape cut Resume & Name. Appropriately for a braggadocious track like this one, the exclusive freestyle series alumnus takes the opportunity to show off his skills on both sides of the boards, pairing a chopped and screwed sample with slow-rolling, Flexatone-heavy production as he gives us the lowdown on his ceaseless grind, his high performance on the mic, and (especially) his insatiable appetite for weed. Whether or not you knew Neako’s name before today, this cut should ensure it sticks with you for the foreseeable future; if you like what you’re hearing, be sure to check back with us on July 23, when the artist adds a new street album, the Booth-sponsored Rubix Cube: Yellow Edition, to his musical résumé.
