King Los continues to hype us up for his upcoming album God, Money, War. After dropping “War” and “Can’t Fade Us,” undoubtedly two of the biggest single’s off the Baltimore emcee’s career, Los is back with “Ghetto Boy,” his most abrasive cut yet.
Los reunites with Da Internz, who slowly build a manic, off-kilter production for Los to flex his visceral go-for-broke lyricism. “Ghetto Boy” is another street-savvy piece of conscious hip-hop from Los, whose gritty emotion resonates throughout the track. As Los screams over frenzied guitar swelling on the climactic hook, he really translates the suffocating confines of the ghetto.
