Have you ever heard something that combined lavish speed jazz, two sets of rapid fire double time flows and unapologetically real rhymes? By now you should expect such things from Yelawolf and Trae Tha Truth. The DJ Booth freestyle alum and the self proclaimed Assh*le by Nature trade barbs of venom on the recently leaked (via Twitter) Sh*t I’ve Seen. The Track Bangas production ultimately carries the track to new heights as flourishing horns, brisk congos and moody trumpets balance Yelawolf’s direct shots at frauds with precision: “Half of these rappers don’t know sh*t/ain’t seen a gangsta, ain’t seen a brick/and they wonder why when the OGs come around Yelawolf I get the respect that I get.” Yeah, Catfish Billy takes none too kindly to people living on front street. Neither does Trae Tha Truth, the raspy voiced Texas emcee whose career is flying to new heights after overcoming no shortage of obstacles. Although not yet attached to a project, with a video in the works, expect Sh*t I’ve Seen to continue to provide more evidence that Yela and Trae Tha Truth refuse to stand idle in 2011.
