Upon hearing “Write a Check,” Pounds shakes you down for your attention. This heavy weight rapper easily presents one of the facets of a dope rapper, with a raspy voice. Beyond that, ill wordplay and smooth cadences carry the track, over his own ebullient looping horn production.
It’s a sound collision of Up North x South. Given the New York State’s natives hardships of being surrounded by substance abuse, its clear he utilizes his resilience enough to make it in the sometimes fickle rap game.
You shouldn’t have to wait too long for more from Pounds as he’s working on his latest project, Heavy Lies the Crown, so make sure you’re on the lookout.
