Emilio Rojas ft. Killer Mike - FTW

Posted 5 years ago
DJ Static
Life Without Shame

You’ve gotta love a good fake-out. While the fanfare that kicks off Emilio Rojas’ latest offering had me thinking “For the Win,” I should have known better than to think success would smooth the Rochester, New York native’s rough edges. In reality, of course, he’s using the acronym FTW in the classic, less-uplifting sense. Backed by DJ Static‘s bombastic synth-brass instrumental, the freestyle series alum demonstrates that “triumphant nihilism” isn’t necessarily an oxymoron, shouting “F*ck the world!” while demonstrating beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s on top of it (double-entendre not intended – but, hey, if the shoe fits…). Joining him on the guest tip, ATL representative Killer Mike/Mike Bigga does his part to push the record’s F-bomb count to stratospheric levels, showcasing a few dazzling flows along the way. If this defiant jam leaves you craving more, we’ve got you covered – released on Friday, Emilio Rojas’ new Life Without Shame street album is available for free streaming and download right here in the Booth.
