With No Rolex (Freestyle) being one of my favorite tracks of the summer, I’m excited to see 2273 Records’ Gyyps releasing more flame ass music. Though the California-based artist hasn’t released a project in about 10 months, these past two releases have been so on point that it makes up for the lack of music (not to say he isn’t working – he’s been busy touring the country and featuring on some of your favorite songs).
Teaming up with Paris LaMont to produce the sample-driven track, Gyyps laces the instrumental with his signature flow, once again proving that he has one of the most distinct voices in rap. While the California influence is noticeable, Gyyps has a Southern sound to him which I find to be a feature that really sets him apart from others. The flow and lyrics beginning at 2:02 are among my favorites on the track, and give you a good idea of Gyyps’ rapping capabilities. Listen to Can’t Stop Me above!
