As the date nears for Fluent‘s J Cardim produced LP Supreme Victory, the homie has blessed us with a slew of solid singles to usher in the Lp. On the latest leak off said project, Fluent brings in Action Bronson over this anthemic backdrop which pays tribute to a certain hip-hop clothing accessory(the title says it all). Incase you get the wrong idea, the chain concept is juxtaposed against the true hustlers spirit of reaching ones goal.
Another solid one if I may reiterate.
From Run DMC’s Dookie ropes to Kanye West’s Horus piece, chains have always been essential part of Hip-Hop culture. But while anyone can rock some gold around their neck and think they’re as fly as Eric B and Rakim, medallions are only worthy of a chosen few. Over this Rocky-esque “Gonna Fly Now” beat from J. Cardim, “Medallion” has Fluent revealing the inner-workings of his hustler’s ambition from a hard working youth, to his surreal, lavish lifestyle. Coupled with a hook from Action Bronson, the track is an ode for those who are moving fast from the bottom to the top, a mentality that is frequently showcased on Fluent’s upcoming LP, Supreme Victory, which is produced entirely by J. Cardim. With appearances from Nipsey Hustle, Joe Budden and Guilty Simpson, Fluent is prepared to show and prove that he can last a full 12 rounds and come out victorious.
