El Prez - I’m Gone (King Kong)
Picture this scene: Beat drops, El Prez begins to rhyme and girls are running to the dance floor spilling their drinks yelling out, “I just wanna dance ... this is my song.” In an era of too many shout outs and instrumentals that drag on at the beginning of tracks, El Prez jumps right in like a game of double dutch with no hesitation on I’m Gone (King Kong). Ahead of the retails version of Animal Style due out next month (check the DJBooth mixtape version), El Prez releases the “animal-out-the-cage” version of the Ro-Blvd produced track and the joint (pun intended) goes hard. This is one of those tracks that’s perfect for the summer. Windows down, volume up and smoking some trees (allegedly) while beating on your chest like King Kong. But “pop Bottles on the White House Lawn”? I guess this is why we don’t invite rappers to the White House (thanks Common). Ha! I’m gone.
