6. “Round Here (Freestyle)”
Call me Oxy-Weezy I’m in the chocalate tin like Foxy Breezy
Bungle up, saddle in, we headin’ straight to the top
And me not with the battling if it don’t make me box, wassup?
Mr. MC, you can take these props
While a nigga like me come and take Hip Hop
Wayne has gone through so many transition periods throughout his career that it is hard to document them all. In 2003 when The Prefix dropped, calling buddy Hip-Hop’s marquee act was not exactly the most accurate statement. However, for those who actually paid attention to the guy around this time, they knew something special was brewing. This tape – more specifically his embalming of Memphis Bleek’s hit – proved such beliefs. Look at the last line two bars. You can’t say Weezy didn’t always have confidence in himself.
