Sway’s a lucky guy. Fireworks fly every time he brings Locksmith onto his show. But at this point it’s a waste of words to keep finding different ways to say “Lock killed it!” so I’m not going to. What I want to emphasize is that the bars he’s spitting are actual freestyles and not a rehearsed set of memorized or cell phone rhymes—just real, off-the-top lyrics.
And I know this because Locksmith isn’t perfect. That’s the beauty of it. He stutters, he pauses, and especially by the end of the segment he’s obviously thinking about his next lines while rapping. But guess what? The end product is a real freestyle, an art that’s become almost extinct in the Internet era. So folks, watch this, let it soak, because this sh*t right here, it won’t be replicated anytime soon.
