If someone were to ask me which rappers I considered Poets, Rocko‘s name wouldn’t come up. No offense to the man; sophisticated lyricism just never seemed to be his focus. If the U.O.E.N.O. hitmaker is looking to change that perception, though, collaborating with Nas ain’t a bad start. On the latest single off his new EP, the EMPIRE signee offers a rundown of his many Hustles, from CEO to softball pitcher. Nasir Jones takes over on the middle, lacing Fatboi‘s smooth production with vivid imagery and polysyllabic rhymes. Does this cut represent a true upgrade to Rocko’s pen game? If you think so, more fresh bars await on the Poet EP, available now for free download.
