Even with so many top-notch choices to choose from, “Rock Bottom” still remains my personal favorite from the Str8 Killa saga. It wasn’t so much the genuine expression of his methodical Catch-22 where coping with depression through substance abuse that won me over. It was more so that Gangsta Gibbs wickedly slayed a track that perfectly fit his gravely understated baritone as it was slowed down to the proper BPM to allow his flow to really highlight his full potential.
Stuck in between a rock and a hard place while standing on solid ground, the clip showcases the beauty of the rut no human being is exempt from a few instances in their lifetime. Even with the absent Bun B feature, the song still resonates amongst those living from check to check, trying not fall beneath the floor boards. You’re speaking through Freddie and he’s voicing your concerns.
Str8 Killa is available now.
