While other members of Freebandz offer variations on the trap formula—Future is a lover and Casino wields a booming voice—Young Scooter is a trapper on the surface and in his heart. The rapper is forever committed to the block, and on “Life Support,” seeing the problems plaguing his hood, he’s not about to give up on his people. Legal trouble will only slow him down, he says, and never stop him from supporting his daughter, partners and all those standing on their respective corners. The feeling is apparently infectious: 2 Chainz, whose connection to the streets usually seems more concerned with punchlines, appears more reverent than usual. Stream below, off Scooter’s forthcoming ’80s Baby tape.
