The 1995–96 Chicago Bulls are considered as one of the greatest teams in the history of basketball, with their record of 72-10 having stood as the best-ever record in the NBA. Thus, they are often referred to as the golden standard for all things great. Brooklyn’s Manolo Rose is striving for that level of eminence, and after having a breakout 2015 with his singles “Run Ricky Run!” and “Super Flexin’” he aims to continue that run into 2016 with the release of his new project Soul of a Rose.
He has dropped the first “preview” from that project, “Offense Defense.” Produced by Reazy Renegade (who will produce the entirety of Soul of a Rose), Rose references the 1997-1998 Bulls team (the last season Michael Jordan wore the red and black), Kobe Bryant, Raekwon, and an affinity for balling although he “can’t shoot a jump shot” all in one breath over a bass-loaded backdrop. Shoot the rock below.
