Here’s some new heat from Big Sant in the form of “Say That Shit”, the third release from his forthcoming debut MFxOG.
The track sees the Mississippi man renew his partnership with the state’s most recent big export, Big K.R.I.T., and it’s a trunk-rattling gem. You might recognise Sant from several of his partner’s highly successful mixtape tracks, but here he’s a power in his own right.
The duo trade blows over K.R.I.T.’s bruising beat, challenging rivals to go on and “say that shit” and Sant actually comes off pretty well. Whilst he hasn’t got all of his country cousin’s complexity, Sant knows to handle himself on the mic. In fact, his less considered, less restrained bars might just give him this on points. At the end, for example, he drops us right in the middle of his old school ride:
“I was country as a baller…ice water, glass sipping in the car, windows down, screws deckin’, hoe checkin’, mo’ cheddar, cheese chasing Mississippi pimp no better.”
If that isn’t a southern rapper rocking a southern beat then I don’t know what it is:
Big Sant’s MFxOG drops on October 9th.
