Since everyone is treating Kendrick Lamarlike Roxanne Shante with the answer records, the Knicks’ very own Iman Shumpert has his say on this new track entitled “Dear Kendrick.” The track is produced by J-Muzick.
It’ll be hard for anyone to top Joell Ortizand Lupe’soffering, but this is nice. Shump’s bars are getting better with every track.
Iman Shumpert isn’t the only member of the squad that has bars. Rasheed Wallace joins Shump and Tek of Smif N Wessun for the closing track off Freeway’s just released mixtape Black Santa. Too bad Jason Kidd couldn’t get in on this, too.
Before the Knicks take on the Chicago Bulls tonight, treat yourself to Iman Shumpert’s debut mixtape Th3 #Post90s. Shump has did his homework — the tape has its assorted tributes to the 90s (and even 80s) on tracks sampling Arrested Development to Run DMC. But Shumpert doesn’t rely on reliable samples; he has an assorted of original beats with soulful and boom bap arrangements over the typical trap beats.
Iman Shumpert is official. Hope he continues honing his talents in the booth.
Iman Shumpert’s keeping busy behind the mic while finishing up the last months of his ACL rehab. Up until now, Shump’s rhymes have been solo joints and freestyles. Now he’s getting some big established names, having hooked up with the talented Chrisette Michele for “Supaphly.” So what’s the verdict? Not the worse track you’ll hear, but far from memorable. Chrisette’s voice sounds great as usual, but the production and overdone swag rap doesn’t help matters. Your thoughts?
