Releasing his first single of 2023 in “Wassup” on Friday (Feb. 24), the new track not only shows he’s developing into a star-in-the-making, but also proves him to be one of the most underrated emcees with tons of potential to break out.
“Wassup” sees Strick reflect on his life as he relays unapologetic bars about his lost trust and friendships — telling his story through his laid-back flow as he rides the piano-led melody over trap 808s for a rather reflective performance. The coinciding visual depicts his fast-paced lifestyle of balancing the studio and hustling — cutting back and forth between being in the streets and the life that comes with it.
“Engine price going thru the lights
Had to cut off some dead weight
It took all my might
It’s a treacherous world we live in
Watch yo pesos
Took some risks to get where I’m at you should take notes”Strick – “Wassup”
