Quick Thoughts: There’s an undeniable confidence to everything that Jaywop does. On “Gold,” his first release of the new year, he compares himself to Mike will Made It. But the Arizona native has the unmistakable talent to back it up, thanks to his lyrical prowess and an impressive ear for melody. He pairs hard-hitting bars with smooth, unforgettable delivery throughout the entire track. “But I know you walk that fine line between getting gas and not having drive,” he raps in the track’s first verse.
For the track’s second verse, Deante’ Hitchcock picks up right where Jaywop left off. The two pair perfectly, delivering with similarly effortless flow. “Gold” is one of the most impressive rap tracks of the new year, leaving no doubt that Jaywop is a star.
