Much like the product itself, Hustle/D-Boy Rap is only as good as it’s packaged. It’s not a lifestyle I relate to, but it does make for an intriguing story when done right. For San Francisco (Filmore to be exact) spitter DaVinci, all the ingredients are in place. His laid back flow and maneuverability over the subtle key and string arrangements in “Hustlers Theme” are stimulating and soothing. There is an honesty in his voice that is void of any braggadocio, leaving all clutter cut with the bullshit to the side. Even if the shoes weren’t ours to fill there are still some jewels to walk away with. Definitely a good start for someone looking to set up shop in this game.
