Let’s start it off like this… If Styles P isn’t within your Top 15 lyricists of all time, we can’t be friends.
It’s just not possible. Not only is he one of the most gifted with the pen, his longevity in the game is absolutely ridiculous. How is this “over the hill” emcee, with 20+ years in the game, still out here bodying fools? It’s something only Styles, Black Thought and a few others could even begin to explain.
We’re only four months into 2016 and it’s already a year to remember for the longtime LOX member. On top of igniting the booth alongside the likes of Black Thought (“Making A Murderer“), Curren$y (“Disappearing Act“), Freddie Gibbs (“The Grind“), and Royce 5’9” (“The Banjo“), Styles debuted a new movie series, and is responsible for an absurd amount of popular beats finding their final resting place.
To further prove my point, P is back with not one, but four new freestyles—ranging from Anderson .Paak’s “Might Be” to Miguel and Kurupt’s Wildheart connection, “NWA.” The real gem is “Ghost For Ghost,” though—which finds P bored with the lack of competition these days and calling out rappers (including himself) for their ability to ignore problems in their own hood to brag about financial wealth.
Check out the latest collection of freestyles below and be sure to thank P on Twitter for being one of the realest in the game—again, for the last two decades.
