Chris Rivers – “I Just Wanna Rap” f. Nitty Scott, MC & Whispers

blame it on Meka September 1, 2015

After spending pretty much his entire summer working every Friday with his weekly freestyle drops, Chris Rivers is ready to unveil his new project Medicated Consumption. But instead of hijacking a random vintage instrumental for the project’s first single, he links up with frequent co-conspirator Whispers and New York bombshell Nitty Scott, MC over this soulful track produced by Data.

A quick rundown of the song: Chris wants to pursue his rap dreams, while Nitty suggests to him that he doesn’t have to as she’s a proverbial trap queen. I wish I had a woman who pretty much told me “you could chase your goals, meanwhile I’ll use my gains – legal or otherwise – to make sure the rent is paid and your belly full.” Anyways, listen to the track below.

As a bonus, check out his profile on XXL’s new viral series “Family Ties,” where – for the first time to my ears – he sounds exactly like his father.
