Locksmith Spits Crazy Bars in ‘House of Games (Freestyle)’ Video

When it comes to being lyrical, loquacious and lexiconic — look no further than rapper Locksmith. The California native and topnotch rhymer has made a name for himself as an elite battle rhymer before pursuing a rap career. If you need further proof, then watch his new video for ‘House of Games (Freesytle).’

In the clip, directed by Brian Storm, Locksmith relays a flurry of tongue-twisting rhymes that will make you rewind the video to hear some of his notable quotables.

“Stick a fork in his corpse / couragely courtin’ / Sortin his portion for organs / Give metaphors an abortion / A portrait of poor sportsman / Endorse him, remorse towards him / I torture his vocals chords / And his course is the four horsemen,” he spits.

In the midst of Locksmith’s rappity-raps, the video is intermixed with disturbing scenes from classic films like ‘The Shining,’ ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ ’2001: A Space Odyssey,’ ‘Dr. Strangelove’ and more.

Also, if you listen closely, the thunderous beat may sound familiar to you. It’s a slight reworking of Notorious B.I.G.’s classic street banger ‘Who Shot Ya.’ Props to producer Mike Blankenship (and Locksmith) for bringing the boom bap beat and haunting piano groove.

Overall, if you wondering where the lyricism is at in hip-hop, then play Locksmith’s ‘House of Cards’ video and enjoy.
