“Tennis Shoes” (listen/download)
After doing pretty good for himself in 2012, Milwaukee rapper Pizzle is looking to keep up the momentum. So he is prepping a new project labeled, Insomnia 2. To tide fans over until the release, he has shared a new single called “Tennis Shoes.” The song is a stand alone track and will not appear on the upcoming offering. The record was produced by AO Beats. The production here is blazing. It contains a severe bass line, dramatic rhythm, and a harsh vibe. No hook is used on this cut. There is just a witty reference to the track’s title at the beginning of the tune. The extended verse is top-of-the-line. Pizzle provides a magnetic flow, sly wordplay, and choice rhymes. He serves up a brief yet strong example of why his pending project is one of the most anticipated of the new year. Notable lines include: “Young n—as who live reckless. Just put a mill on my checklist. I hit a chick and she call me daddy. Answer, no question. Give her an answer. No questioning me. Hoes running over these n—as. You supposed to run over these hoes like a mannequin. A mannequin is what you supposed to be n—a. N—as talking down and I’m moving up.” Pizzle slays in those bars right there. Overall, this song is a banger and a wonderful appetizer for the masses while they wait for Insomnia 2 to drop.
**My Two Cents: The more I hear from Pizzle, the more I like. This was definitely a winning track. Everything went hard from the production to the content. Looking forward to hearing what else Pizzle has up his sleeve in the future. Readers can make sure they are up to date on all things Pizzle by checking him out on: Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. -MinM
