Willie the Kid Partners with Roc Marciano on ‘Avalon’
Produced by Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Bronze Nazareth, the song uses David McCallum’s 1967’s orchestral tune ‘The Edge,’ which Dr. Dre famously sampled on ‘The Next Episode’ from ‘The Chronic 2001′ album. The throwback sound provides enough soul and warmth for Willie the Kid and Marcberg to spit their cold-blooded rhymes.
“Lawfully wedded to this paper that I’m making / Banking / I’m brave enough to be creative / But I accumulate like a native / Trying to blend with the cadence / Abide by the rules, fuck the latest trend,” raps Willie the Kid.
Then Marciano comes through and relays his bullet-riddled verse, spitting, “The watch is Swiss / These rhymes these are hieroglyphs / Glide from the cliff / It’s rare I fire and miss / I usually hit the bull’s eyeris.”
Yes, there’s lots of rappity rapping going on here but it’s creative enough to hold your attention for three minutes.
Willie the Kid is set to release his new project ‘The Living Daylights’ on Feb. 11. The collection boasts guest features from Sean Price, Young Dirty Bastard, Sun God, Boldy James, Sha Stimuli and others. You can pre-order the album on iTunes.
