SPAR

"Spar": Dreezy ft. 6LACK & Kodak Black

Production: stwo

Album: Hip Hop Hit List (Vol. 3)


Most good collaborations tend to be the product of similar-sounding artists with similar-sounding styles rapping similar-sounding flows to create something cohesive.


This isn't one of those times. Dreezy, 6LACK and Kodak Black really shouldn't work together, but they just do. And its their individual 'flaws' that shine when meshed together.


6LACK's monotone flow can get boring on his own projects, but here his lack of emotion comes across as resignation, and makes his chorus all the more stark. Dreezy's over-reliance on cocky 90s rhyme schemes can occasionally take away from her talents as a lyricist, but lines like 'black/white world but I only see green' in this context sound defiant rather than shallow. And Kodak Black manages to put his past portfolio of wackness behind him with easily his best verse, referencing Kunta Kinte, HAARP and Acts 7:6.


All from the dude who brought you 'I'm the shit I'm farting, I don't know how to potty'.

What a man.
