Add-2 - Superman
There’s no more hip-hop-beloved comic-book hero than Superman, and understandably so—in addition to being absurdly overpowered (I mean, his only weakness is a substance not naturally occurring on Earth), he’s got abilities uniquely suited to rocking the mic (What rapper wouldn’t want superhuman speed and lung capacity?). Add-2 may prefer black hoodies to spandex and bright red briefs, but, on this newly-leaked cut, the School Daze emcee does the caped crusader proud, showcasing some out-of-this-world swagger and delivering double-time rhymes with greatest of ease. IIL Meel goes all-out on the production tip, backing the Chi-town up-and-comer’s braggadocio with triumphant sampled-brass fanfare. A prime candidate to soar to the top of our Independent chart, this track is sure to leave listeners wondering what high-flying feats the rapper has in store for his Okayplayer & 2Dopeboyz-sponsored Tale Of Two’s City Vol. 3: The Rise & Fall mixtape (out this Friday). Watch for Add-2’s contribution to our DJBooth.net Freestyle Series to hit our frontpage sometime in September!
