Jimi Tents channels Rick Rubin on his new single.
The young Brooklyn rapper has been laying pretty low since he put out his debut EP 5 O'Clock Shadow 18 months ago. Since then, he's outfitted his hooptie with Forgiatos, and now he's getting ready to release his sophomore project. Last night, he shared "Rick Rubin," his new single in which he expresses aspirations to be more like the legendary producer. He raps with the easy bravado of a man who can feel his stock rising -- or maybe he's simply speaking it into existence. Either way, it's a virtuous cycle.
So cold, I don't know what to do
Hoes on me, I don't know what to do
Phone ringing, I don't know who that was
Nowadays, every nigga the plug
