Fred The Gift - I Am Fly

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
PCP Beats
Album:
Untitled

If you haven’t guessed from the stage name (and the fact that he’s a rapper), Booth newcomer Fred the Gift thinks pretty highly of himself—as far as he’s concerned, there’s no one on his level. On I’m So Fly, though, he makes the decidedly down-to-earth admission that everything he does, he does for the listeners.  Over a starkly minimal instrumental by PCP Beats, the Bronx emcee exercises his slow flow, striking an entertaining balance between swag-heavy braggadocio and sincerity, and even taking a moment to compliment his fans on their impeccable taste: “If you’re f*ckin’ with the Gift that means you’re doing something different/ You heard hip-hop and realized there’s something missing.”  The arguable highlight, though, is the sample that accompanies the rapper’s hook; taken from Masta Ace’s classic trunk banger, Born to Roll, the “Rollin’ down my windows, yeah I got an air conditioner,” snippet is sure to have old-school fans turning up the volume. I’m So Fly is set for inclusion on a forthcoming project, the details of which are yet unannounced.
