Coming bigger than before, Dale City, Virginia’s own prodigy G.I.P is a whole vibe with the way he lets business handle business for him. He is a dexterous lyricist, a dope sound engineer, a virtuosic producer and a damn great entrepreneur handling his own record label Go Get It Entertainment and the merchandise and apparel that comes with it. He comes through with his hardcore lyricism amidst the deep-drill bangers as we witnessed in his disruptive album “Real Rap Matters”. His latest track ‘Listen” will whisk you from the dramatic and exhilarating flair of the Super Bowl to the turned-up full blast ambiance of the club all in an instance. This is an anthem for the culture inclusive of insightful knowledge, power, and real-life lyrics. In typical G.I.P fashion, the lyrics are thought-provoking, playfully intricate, and flaunt some of its boastful lines to remind everyone who he really is!
He takes us way back with this release that starts to Hollywood-like cinematography with the gunshots and the haunting sway of the piano melody that a listener will carry with them for the rest of the record as it paints its motif on the background amidst the quintessential boom bap kicks, the beat synths, the crispy drums and the sporty bass tones that make up this nostalgically familiar yet authentically original piece of melody.
G.I.P actually pays the listener with some reality check! Solidifying his lyrical presence with his tremendous lyricism performed in his unpredictable vocal range that showcases flexibility in between the catchy chorus and when delivering the genuinely powerful bars. This is pure fantasy that thrills as much as it educates. Beneath the layers of the technical and intricate wordplay and clever lyricism are very deep insights about the way of life. For example, he says in one of the lines “I ain’t gone stop this momentum… They told me to go get it I did it…”
True to his own words, this is more than just the music, it is a lifestyle and when the lifestyle gets this flashy, it requires a great deal of recognition and appreciation. He is not done yet, in fact, he is just getting started and the way I see it, he is coming for the Grammys! He has also re-launched his YouTube channel to quench his videography thirst where visual imagery will be live and in 4K! “Listen is now available on all your favorite streaming platforms, go check it out, stream it, save and share it as you take a wild tour on G.I.P’s astonishing discography!
