Vic Mensa & Joey Purp – 773 Freestyle


vic mensa

“Just know I’m shitting on your life,” Vic Mensa proclaims on “773 Freestyle,” his new collaborated track with Joey Purp. Even if your life’s quite alright, you probably don’t carry yourself and go about your day with the energy the two emcees give on this tag-teamed freestyle. Produced by Papi Beatz, the track’s instrumental brings the quintessential trap hi-hats along with heavy, droning bass and a jazzy horn section – something you’d expect on a J. Cole album. But the rappers don’t just lay down a single verse each. They trade off, back and forth, summing to seven verses total, as if conversing to each other in their improv, so as to keep it just that much more interesting for the whole five minutes. Listen below.
