Redhead's flow on this track is reminicent of more "conscious" lyracists like Nas and Common, yet offer the same fun and laugh inducing metaphors and bar structures from artists like Lupe. With Redhead he has his own unique sound. Redhead opens with the hilarious "They say I sound white cause Im high pitched/ Because I got that thing that makes your eyes twitch".
One thing's for sure you would NEVER mistake his voice with anyone else--and thats a great thing in the market where 90% of the songs/beats/artists are indistringuishable from one another. When you hear him, its a new sound. You initially think this voice wouldnt come up with anything hot but then he spits a crazy line that has you saying "what did he just say??" He's intelligent with his delivery and surprisingly entertaining. On this song, the assist by Malik-16 (also attended Howard) brings the track to a street level and offers additional insight on what it means to "talk white".
Definitely worth a download.
