George Bucks’ single ‘Got the Time’, was a bit of shock to know what to make of it originally. The opening beat of the single reminded me of late 90’s-2000 Hip-Hop, with Dr Dre specifically coming to mind.
That being said, even though the beats brought on feelings of nostalgia, they are also quite generic. This in itself is not a bad thing, but it is a bit overdone.
As for other features, I did enjoy Bucks use of imagery in his lyrics.
This coupled with his unique style contributed to a listening experience that was pleasant and enjoyable.
Bucks has a unusual way of making his rap sound unique to other more “chart rap and hip hop” that is out at the moment, he takes a more classic sound and modernises it.
It works well, the lyrical flow works as for his style it hugely compliments his image. I could imagine this track being on the background of a Thrasher skateboarding video and Musik is hoping that it gets released soon because it’s a song that should blow up.
Fingers crossed for this up and coming rapper who is not afraid to stand out in this era at least!
