XL ft. Sean Price - Credibility

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: XL
Featuring:
Producer:
Shuko (w/ cuts by DJ G-Squared)
Album:
Beast Coast

In today’s hip-hip industry, skill on the mic does not necessarily translate into success. While what you can do certainly factors into the makings of a career, who you are is equally important. 50 Cent wouldn’t be half the star he is today if he hadn’t been shot nine times, and, in the same vein, Akon’s career never would have taken off if he hadn’t lied about going to prison. XL’s new single, Credibility, is about achieving the badass reputation that all rappers long for. The Boston emcee doesn’t disclose the past experiences that have made him so hard, but his gruff voice and his blistering lyrics certainly make him sound credible. Producer Shuko throws some sonorous horns into the mix, while guest Sean Price contributes a no-nonsense verse. Credibility will appear on XL’s upcoming album, Beast Coast.
