When it comes to looking for something to symbolize fierceness, aggression and just pure pandemonium towards an opponent, there’s no better muse than Oklahoma City Thunder point guard, Russell Westbrook. See, it’s not just that he averaged a triple double, or that he’s now the leagues overwhelming MVP. No. It’s the way he dominates opponents that has endeared him to our hearts. While he’s stealing America’s heart, he’s eating the opps’. He’s a killer (not literally) and that controlled (sometimes it’s not) killer instinct is something that literally every wannabe-alpha-dog in these United States of America. He also serves as a fantastic selling point and metaphor when it comes to demonstrating your impending atomic bomb on the game and that’s exactly what Philly native Corey Lee did with the Westbrook-inspired single for, “Why Not?”
Set to the tone of a hard-hitting J.Rach track, Lee absolutely bodies this track. I became a fan of Lee through his, A Shot In The Dark, project last year. On, “Why Not?” Lee keeps his smooth cadence and ups the ante with boastful bars like, “I’m a franchise player you talking practice to me? Your favorite rapper target practice to me,” coupled with generationally conscious lines like, “You can act like you don’t see me nigga/ way to overwhelming, Matt Ox,” and “Make me wanna go grab like the Uzi like they left the nigga off Bad and Boujee.” With tracks like this, it’s not hard to imagine the East Coast rep stamping his mark in the game on a national level sooner rather than later.
