I gotta be honest – if you’re gonna try and take a Kendrick Lamar beat and use it on a mixtape, you had better do it justice. Not only was Good Kid, M.A.A.D City one of the best mainstream Hip-Hop albums arguably of the decade, but Kendrick’s version of “Backseat Freestyle” is one of his most signature songs. Good thing the God Over Money Team wrecks this.
Peep some of the lyrics from the first verse by Bumps INF:
All my life I want money and power
Respect my mind or die from sin’s curse
I admit it I did dirt
You did it I did worse
A hell, yeah living like a felon
Rebellin from His Word
I promise that He ain’t finished
I’m liable still to blow it
Fighting sin if you notice
But minus Him I’m a no one
Liable just to slide again
Vicodin with a cold one
I lose sight again
Why is sin so bogus?!
I’m not gonna spoil the rest for you. The flow is consistent and as always, the mixture of the team adds for a nice balance. Flo murders his part and Bizzle, as always, leaves you in disbelief.
Here’s where you can download the whole Martyrs in the Making Volume 2 Mixtape (http://godovermoney.com/audio/mitm2/) which remixes other Kendrick songs too. Daring, but successful.
