L.E.G.A.C.Y. – “By The Time I Get…”

04.28.10 7 years ago

khal sent this older freestyle from L.E.G.A.C.Y. yesterday and my interests were instantly piqued. The Carolina emcee is underrated but trying your hand over a PE track isn’t for everybody. Chuck set the bar so high when he was @ his peak, it takes a certain caliber of emcee to even approach the challenge. One has to be either extremely talented or lyrical. I think Freddie did it well on “N_gga Machine” and L.E.G.A.C.Y. holds his own with “By The Time…”

Full of basketball references and “wind behind my back” bravado, L.E.G. makes his presence felt and, knowing this is from ’05, it only shows the growth he’s experienced between then and last year’s Suicide Music. There’s more than enough smile-producing punchlines to warrant a listen, especially if you haven’t been checking for him previously.
