On the eve of his debut album, Godfrey dropping, Oswin Benjamin stopped by Sway In The Morning and dropped a 10-minute freestyle where he absolutely demolishes 9 classic beats. In true Oswin fashion, he finds an amazing balance of keeping his rhymes lighthearted but addressing real-life issues in the same breath. As timely as can be he pays homage to the late Nipsey Hussle, while mixing in subtle fun punchlines like the one about 90’s MTV cartoon Doug. But then sharply brings us back to reality with lines like:
..She knew America is focused on the exterior designs, put a filter on everything for the sake of a like. We so worried about the lawn, we aint even fixin’ the lights, we so worried about a wall, we ain’t even fixin’ the pipes!
This may be the best freestyle of the year.
