Lifestyles of The Lit & Shameless EP by Shaun ESKO
He raps “I’m a product of the ghetto I’m just trying to find my way”
He indeed finds his way by providing a mixture of eclectic sounds and lyrics while skillfully boasting over the soundscape to deliver an experience like no other.
Young Sheck Wes took over hip-hop with his now-massive single, “Mo Bamba.” The rising Harlem rapper went on to deliver a series of brick singles, sign with Kanye West and Travis Scott, and summon an immense amount of hype for his debut album ‘MUDBOY.’ With virality in his corner, Wes faced the daunting task of proving he is not a one-hit-wonder.
Enter: ‘MUDBOY,’ a debut album that supplants Sheck Wes’ viral success without painting in uninspired strokes. ‘MUDBOY’ is, thankfully, not an album filled with “Mo Bamba” type tracks, nor is it a series of sloppy pivots in search of another smash hit. The album is a coming-of-age story told over hot and harrowing trap production, with Wes employing a breadth of deliveries, demanding we notice and respect his range. Wes gives us stories of his childhood and Senegalese culture on “Never Lost,” and still worms in a riotous anthem with “Gmail.” With ‘MUDBOY,’ Sheck Wes proves that he is no one-hit-wonder; he’s getting really rich, though.
After MGK sent shots Eminem's way with "Rap Devil," Em is ready to fire back with an eviscerating cut. "KILLSHOT" is exactly that, a diss track featuring Eminem tapping into his signature anger and going for MGK's throat by way of advanced wordplay. While the game is constantly changing, even in the forum of a diss track, Eminem keeps finding new ways of moving music forward.
Em hits Kells where it hurts, clowning everything from his career to his fashion sense, to his attempts at starting beef with Bay Area rapper G-Eazy. Did Eminem take out MGK with this one? Press play and find out which artist is walking away from this beef as the victor.
