Rittz - Walking on Air

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Shane Eli
Album:
White Jesus: Revival

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? Then don’t miss White Jesus: Revival when it hits our mixtape page for free streaming and download March 8.
