Rittz - Walking on Air
As recently as November of 2011, Rittz sounded like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders. Just three months and change later, he’s “...feelin like [he’s] Walking on Air.” Leak numero deux off his forthcoming White Jesus re-release, this freshly-released cut finds the Slumerican signee (and freestyle alum) coming together with a fellow house fave to fill fans in on just how dope his 2012 is shaping up to be. Shane Eli reunites with the A-Town rhymesayer and once again the duo meshes impressively well; the Los Angeles rapper/beatsmith (also a freestyle alum) crafts an instrumental backdrop befitting a down-South street banger, layering electric guitar licks and synth flourishes over a whip-ready rhythm as Rittz flaunts his stacks and exterminates the competition in characteristically hi-octane verses: “Cockroaches, I got no choice, I gotta fumigate / Accumulatin’ dollars daily, how much money you done made?” Feeling this hard-hitting yet positive-minded selection?
