No Permission Needed – [Rexx Life Raj] ft. [Bas]
When two of the most consistent and thoughtful (yet slept on) artists in rap (in my opinion at least) get together it’s a guarantee that I’m going to write about it. Throw a Sango beat under them and I couldn’t get to my computer fast enough. I’ve been waiting for Rexx Life Raj to blow up for a while. To be honest, it’s too hard to predict these things, but with his new album, Father Figure 3: Somewhere Out There set to drop early next month, he’s been making all the right moves and gaining some serious momentum. First, a collab with Kenny Beats, then one Russ, and now, Rexx joins forces with Bas for “No Permission Needed.” Even with different styles–Rexx with is light crooning and Bas with that deep voice– two emcees are the perfect duo to tackle the cushioned Sango beat because of their ability to be thoughtful and inspirational without ever coming across as corny. Rounding the effort (released early this week), Rexx dropped off a left-of-center video where he showcases his gardening skills.
