GhostWridah ft. ¡Mayday! - Still Not Famous

Posted 6 years ago
Miami Beat Wave
In Love With My Future Mixtape

While I realize that I’m more likely to be struck dead by lightning while on my way to cash in a 100 million-dollar Powerball ticket than to become a nationally-known celebrity on the strength of my track reviews, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t, on occasion, daydreamed about superstardom. There’s nothing wrong with indulging in fantasy every now and again but, as Miami emcee (and freestyle series alum) GhostWridah sagely observes on mixtape leak Still Not Famous, the burning desire to be in the spotlight has its share of pitfalls. Over a haunting, piano-driven beat beat by frequent production collaborator Miami Beat Wave (assisted by local hip-hop group ¡Mayday!), Ghost offers his intricately-flowed reflections on the price of success, assuring listeners that he’s got his own priorities straight: “Motherf*ck fame – I’m tryin’ to get me a home.” Here’s hoping the emcee can maintain his philosophical outlook when the bright tomorrow forecasted in the title of his forthcoming street album, In Love With My Future, arrives. The project has yet to receive a solid release date, but fans can, of course, keep it locked for all the latest.
