Cash Money Records signee Eighty8 weaves his rhythmic bars through 808s and heavy percussion on latest release, “The Realest.” The music video shows the rapper at a dinner table seated with guests wearing lime green ski masks. He continues to rap atop a roof with a cityscape in the background. His camera presence is effortlessly personable and energetic as he delivers each verse with finesse.
“The Realest” has a classic trap beat consisting of hi-hats and drums. The Miami rapper has an articulate flow toggling between lyrical bars and vocalized melodies. The track acts as his introspective diary reflecting on his lifestyle. He opens the song, “you turned a seven to a brick now you like God around this b****, yeah they tell me slow down with that trap but if I stop then who gon’ feed me?” Pushing back on his naysayers, his lyrics rationalize his way of living and hustle mentality.
Following the success of his previous single. “Hit” surpassing 2 million views, the rapper gives his listeners another hard-hitting track with an engaging visual. Eighty8 combines aspects of multiple genres to highlight his lyricism and style. He is an undeniable asset in Cash Money’s arsenal of emerging talent.
