If someone sat me down and asked me to play songs that embodied what good hip-hop is all about, I would play “Lock Shit Down” for them. It’s no surprise that these two MCs who’ve always performed best in a group, make perfect rhyming mates on this cut. If you haven’t copped a lot of good rap lately, this one is going to make up for that unfortunate dry spell you (and I) have been suffering through.
