A catchy beat will always stop me. A good voice for rap with a great flow will make me stay a while.
But if you add in a contemporary rags to riches/look at me now/love me now tale, I’m hooked.
I’m also a big a fan of well done lyric videos. This is the exact kinda thing I like: atmospheric with settings, fonts, shots, etc to match.
Tag on that beneath the swag, he’s a t ortured guy, and you couldn’t make me happier. That’s what J. Cole’s “Power Trip” (feat. Miguel) did for me, and why it’s today’s Music Monday.
Just press play. And enjoy. :)
