“I’m the only aggin in my city making real music, ’cause everybody on that I’ma pop a pill, shoot to kill music/ And aggins still losin”
Jibreel Price’s music is blatantly transparent. Listen to the Pontiac, MI rapper’s 4u Vol. 1 project and you’ll hear an eager young man, excelling in speaking his mind.
Fueled by the desire to prove statistics wrong, as well as his ex girlfriend, Price uses each of the four potent tracks on his quick hitting new release to position himself as someone listeners can believe in. Fire up gassed bangers like “What I Love (Still Hatin)” or “End Zone” and you’ll hear the Yakistan rapper shadowboxing anyone who’s ever questioned his ethics, spelling out his diligence with a rugged, quick reflex flow. Then there’s “Crazy (IKYC)” and “4TL,” where Jibreel rides more lush soundscapes with his endearing search for a pristine female and stability, respectively. In less than 18 minutes, this rising MC offers lots of steak, while many other MCs simply settle for the sizzle.
