If you’re going to rap over Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” you better do something with it. 19-year-old Memphis rapper goes by the name 21, and he doesn’t have a mixtape out yet. He moved outside of Memphis to West Memphis, Arkansas and as of right now, his “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” freestyle only has 37 plays on it. But the shit is impressive. With a confident Southern drawl that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Goodie Mob track, 21 sounds relaxed but precise, the way Kendrick and André 3000 sound when the rappers’ vocals are effortlessly outshining whatever production lies under them.

Listen to 21’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” freestyle below, along with another freestyle, and look out for his mixtape, The Warning, coming soon.

    21 reminds me of Andre 3000. Its like spoken word on a hip hop beat. His voice is made for rap. I don’t associate this type of delivery with Memphis rap. I love the direction the music and the culture is going. Cats bringing originality and not sounding how they’re “supposed to sound”. Hip hop is in a new golden era.

  • jjjj
