TOP 3

3. GET OUT (3.8/5)

‘Get Out’ has somewhat of a crankin’ beat attached to it, and King Sesame approaches it with this sly demeanor. What I like most about the beat, is that it does a good job in adjusting to the many moods Ses displays on this song.

Ses is pretty truthful on the track, as he descriptively talks about all the lessons he learned about progression growing up. You can hear this aggression in his voice that shows he wants to be this example of someone who made it, as opposed to someone who let the negativity beat him.

Overall, it is a good track that allows you to get a glimpse into his mindset.

2. WIN (3.9/5)

Ironically, ‘Win’ sounds pretty dark, as King discusses his determination to win by all means necessary – It sorta reminds me of that one kid that keeps adding new rules to our favorite childhood games when they know they’re going to lose.

You can certainly hear the hunger in Sesames voice, as he opens up about some of the changes he made in his life to become a better version of himself. I am impressed with the wordplay on the song, as he is able to match the zigzag sound of the beat.

 1. MAKE HIP HOP GREAT AGAIN (4/5)
‘Make Hip Hop Great Again’ is a pretty smooth track by Ses, as he reminisces on some of his favorite rappers from the past. You can tell Ses’s appreciation for the artists of the past were real, because he gives discrete examples of what he listened to from each artist he mentions. My takeaway from this song is that he used some of these influences to mold himself into this great rapper that takes rap a little more serious than the next person.

CONCLUSION

It is obvious that King Sesame is a huge fan of Hip Hop music, as he references many different rap songs throughout his tracks. Rap has clearly had an influence in his life, and it shows not only in his lyrics, but also in his rap skills.

When Sesame isn’t talking about historical rap, he is showing his true feelings towards the current events of today; Ses discusses politics, tragedy, and culture all with this demeanor that comes across as honest.

Overall, I like his flow, his topics, and his willingness to talk about stuff other rappers are scared to.
