After dropping the dynamic Carolinafornia Nightmare album in late 2016, Los Angeles-based rapper Fluent returns with a slick-talkin’ freestyle over Playboi Carti’s addictive “Magnolia” single.
The playful, earworm of a beat is from Atlanta’s Pi’erre Bourne and was featured on Carti’s self-titled debut album released this past April, and Fluent does his damn thing over the instrumental to make it his own. And he does so with a swagger all his own, spitting a smooth flow for nearly two minutes straight and shouting out everyone he’s rocked with over the years (from Action Bronson to SpaceGhostPurrp).
More than a shout-out joint, Flu’s “Magnolia” is also an opportunity to talk some sh*t and flaunt everything he’s earned during his time in the game. This includes plenty of Arthur George socks, a laundry basket filled with Louis Vuitton, more than a few bottles of Hennessey, and a selection of droptops—not to all be enjoyed at the same time, of course.
Flu’s take on “Magnolia” is also serves as a strong reminder to check out last year’s Carolinafornia Nightmare, which includes a number of fire tracks like “Make It (featuring Blu)” and “Getting Paid (featuring Yung L.A.).” The 12 track LP is available via Supreme Regime (via EMPIRE) through all major digital retailers and streaming services.
