Despite the confident facade rappers do their best to maintain, you never really know if you’re destined for Success or Failure till you get there. (Recognizing which is which once you get there… well, that’s a whole ‘nother can of worms.) In the meantime, all you can do is hustle to the utmost of your abilities. On PHZ-Sicks’ latest mixtape leak, the DMV native (and freestyle alum) tackles his self-doubt head-on. Backed by Epik Da Dawn‘s pensive, piano-led production, Sicks drops a cleverly allusive account of his grind, acknowledging the future’s uncertainty but ultimately affirming his commitment to the game – as he hilariously puts it, “It’s time for me to go for mine, and hope things even out like John Legend’s hairline.” Fellow freestyle series contributor Young Scolla handles guest duties, lacing the hook with some of the same soulful sung vocals he showcased on his very first feature. Digging this introspective motivational banger? You can look forward to some fresh new tunes just in time for the New Year; The Laws of PHZ-Sicks is set to hit the ‘net, via RefinedHype, on January 5.
