Gearing up for this summer of 2016, CT-emcee, Rook, displays his love for the culture on his latest offering, “Intro.”
If you had to narrow down one word to describe the track, it would be interminable or maybe even relentless. Basically, figuring out a definitive for the the emcee would prove difficult as the track and its accompanying visual offer up varying sensory thrills.
Before the main event starts, Rook rattles off a few speedy bars to a delighted crowd, without much change of inflection,insinuating he’s simply leveled off some light work. Soon after the track begins, with the attention being barred by heavy strings and a sustained two-minute freestyle, Rook shows why he’s been able to hold his lyrical weight.
On top of being a dope record, the tone of frustration with just getting by clearly echoes the concerns of millennials, with the ill lines:
Last time I checked my check I split it into three’s/One to the federal, the other went to me and the rest went to bills and gasoline/see what I mean?/ It’s hard to get ahead when they got you by your feet.
If his rap skills aren’t impressive enough, Rook is steady grinding in multiple lanes. He currently runs his own digital media company as well as wears a director’s hat. Be sure to peep the visual below and let us know if you’re rockin with it.
