Bekay drops his annual year in review and as per usual, it’s brilliantly entertaining. He pin points world events and some personal ones with a touch of humour and a lot of grit. We all felt the impact of the year so I need not reiterate the negatives but shall acknowledge them and look forward to a brighter 2017.
From celebrity deaths to political turmoil, it’s safe to say that 2016 has been one of the craziest years in recent memory. And to remind us about everything that went down—with plenty of venom and hilarious punchlines mixed in—Brooklyn rapper Bekay returns with his latest annual rundown, “2016 Year In Review.”
The ridiculously talented emcee goes in for nearly five minutes straight over the horns-fueled instrumental from Fat Joe & Remy Ma’s huge single, “All The Way Up.” And in doing so, Bekay references damn-near all of what happened in ‘16, from the Suicide Squad movie and its lead actress (Margot Robbie), to Marco Rubio sweating during the debates, to Pokemon Go taking over the mobile landscape.
Of course, there’s plenty of that aforementioned venom, too. It’s aimed squarely at the likes of President-elect Donald Trump, DC Comics’ fails at the box office (looking at you, Batman v. Superman, and a fellow Brooklyn native who blocked Bekay on Twitter (*cough*Talib Kweli*cough*).
