G-Eazy – No Limit ft. Asap Rocky & Cardi B
G-Eazy’s vibe is typically authoritative, with a brooding sense of control that permeates his bar spitting throughout the track. A$AP Rocky rolls up and does his thing as well, sound reinvigorated after a stellar August Awgust that saw him play an integral role on the new A$AP Mob album Cozy Tapes Vol. 2. However, even with these two strong performances in the fold, I continue to be impressed by Cardi B. Her flow feels effortless and her tone is sharp and on-point during her verse, gifting us with another strong turn on this record. It should help cement her place as perhaps the best female emcee working today. Coupled with the success of “Bodak Yellow,” her recent success does remind me a lot of Nicki Minaj’s early career, but perhaps without all the silliness attached to her lyrics. This is a woman who is focused and primed to take control of the hip-hop game for a minute yet.
