Although we know Sheek Louch as a part of a larger crew, the veteran rapper has no issue riding out dolo. On his latest solo project, Beast Mode 3, Louch delivers a spirited outro called “Alone.” The track features a truly riveting sample that brings back memories of New York City in the 90s when the Golden Era rappers preferred to rap over disco/soul snippets. The energy of the record is immaculate, and ends off the project in a way that left me wanting more.
Sheek raps about a mix of his own personal struggles and issues that plague the nation as a whole. As a OG in the game, Sheek’s introspective view of the world around him is always welcomed. Listening to the LOX member is akin to getting knowledge from the elder on your block.
I was born to stand out, I don’t care if I don’t fit
True story, I grew up around coke
I was only seven when I first seen my pops smoke
Uncle was sniffin’ somethin’, not sure what that was
Kept rubbin’ his nose, put his jacket on backwards
Found out what crack was, then I found a hundred pack
I don’t care whose shit it was, we sold it in the back
