As the saying goes third time’s a charm, and Diaolic‘s ‘Game Time’, the third single off his soon to be released LP Fighting Words, reinforces just that. On this one, he brings in two rap heavyweights (literally) in the form of Sean Price and Vinnie Paz. As expected, the product is brutal, full of intense bars over a sinister backdrop crafted by 5th Seal.
I need not stress that Fighting Words is something y’all should get your paws on. Hit the play button coz its ‘Game Time’!
A trio of rugged rhymers: Sean Price, the Brooklyn-bred lyricist that’s quick to knock your block off Jailhouse Rock style; Diabolic, the aggressive Suffolk County rhyme sayer that spits with reckless abandon; and Vinnie Paz, the
misanthropic Philly native who stays ready for battle, all make up the foundation for “Game Time,” the latest release from Diabolic’s forthcoming Fightin Words LP, that’s set to drop 9/16. Although Diabolic might not be a household name just yet, his accolades are worth mentioning: earning a spot on Billboard’s Hip Hop and R&B charts, as well as receiving the HHUG Best Album of the Year Award with his debut LP, Liar & a Thief, are quite the accomplishments. Over a slick cut from the Brooklyn beat-smith, 5th Seal, who manages to squeeze everybody from Das EFX to the late Guru in this Premier’esque scratch hook, “Game Time” takes things back to the time where lyrics were valued over everything. Pre-orders for Fightin
