Continuing his clever trend of sampling beloved Carribean records, with Gyptian’s Hold You being the latest example, Lovee continues to bless us with a sound different from the brash, in your face Bronx drill we’ve grown accustomed too.
His New York accent & lingo, blending with a sped-up version of Gyptian’s Hold You, gives listeners a lethal combination we didn’t know we needed.
In addition, I’m sure I’m not alone when I say, I selfishly wanted this track to be longer than one minute.
I think that was a smart move by B-Lovee. Keep your records short & sweet so fans easily learn every lyric, keep it on repeat, but are still left wanting more & more.
And that’s exactly how I feel after listening to Neaky.
Personally, I wish more drill artist would sample the classics, regardless of genre. Or, simply rap on beats that aren’t, drill beats.
Trying something new allows rappers to test the limits of their talents.
However, once they experiment with different flows & sounds that their otherwise not known for, is when they make that jump to the next level. The mainstream.
And if I’m not mistaken, we’re witnessing B-Lovee make that very same jump.
And its such a pleasure to watch.
I can’t conclude this article without mentioning the addicting snippet featuring both B-Lovee & Kay Flock at the minute & thirty second mark, of the Neaky visual.
With that being said, looking forward to more bangers like this one from B-Lovee, and other New York City drill artists.
