Gunplay, "The Hard Way" MP3

The interesting thing about "The Hard Way" is how it exists in a zone that Gunplay rarely touches on. Usually he's borderline yell-rapping about running up on you while you're buying a Gatorade or whatever, and every so often he'll make a deeply introspective song about hitting rock bottom. "The Hard Way" finds him barely able to keep his aggression in check. As he spits out every word, it sounds like he's a couple seconds away from kicking over a bunch of chairs and running wild, but he never gets there. The fact that a dude named Gunplay made a song that sounds controlled is kinda weird, but hey, Gunplay is also emerging as one of the most exciting rappers around, no one should expect him to be predictable.
