The Empire Presents: I.I.C.I.W Mixtape

Question?, the San Antonio rapper found getting High In The DJBooth back in mid-April,  has a… (give me a second to flip through my thesaurus) a query for all those who doubt his ability to transform the game: “Is It Cuz Im White?”  Kicking the record off with a declaration of war on the music industry, Question? gets in jabs at everyone from Rihanna and Cassie to Yung Berg and Rick Ross over an unknown beatsmith’s ominous instrumental (I’m guessing that sample is taken from Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana; anyone with an hour to burn is welcome to sit through the whole piece and let me know for sure).  IICIW‘s most striking moment comes on the back end, when Question? steps back from the orchestral bombast to level with listeners a cappella, admitting that he’s not sure how to clean up the mess the game has become but stating with confidence that he’s “soon to be.”  If you agree, stay tuned for the emcee’s The Empire Presents: I.I.C.I.W mixtape, coming soon.
