Track2Track: Pit Stop
Jimmy: Eddie, not only is what you're saying not true, it is wrong and disrespectful for you to discuss Rosa Parks in that way.
For many people a barber isn't just someone who cuts hair; they're your life coach, your therapist, your news anchor to the CNN of the hood, and so much more. But what happens when your barber is in one of your favorite videos? But not cuttin hair, but cuttin up the track. Keezy proves on 'Pit Stop' that his flow is as sharp as his clippers and that sometimes the funnest place to be, is the barbershop.
But this isn't the first time a barbershop has been used in film. In 2002 Ice Cube started his 'Barbershop' movie franchise that has since made 3 movie projects. But what makes the barbershop so exciting? It's the people, it's the fact that there is no telling who will walk in the door. And for 'Pit Stop' this would include a guy with cowboy boots and a grill, IF THAT AIN'T UNPREDICTABLE THAN I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS.
Let's hit up TNT, it's a Friday,
Starting from the opening verse Keezy meticulously guides the listener thru the track and seamlessly is able to transition to the next beat without losing one listener. This is not an easy feat, especially with an amazing production from producer, 2Peece. But what makes Keezy's flow even more impressive is when the beat switches up that fact that it would be satisfactory for any rapper to just ride the beat. Keezy on the other hand switches up his flow and cadence which inadvertently creates whole a new beat inside of the already new beat going. And that ain't easy captain'.
So what have we learned? 1) Pit Stop is a dope song that is accented by the video. 2) Go get Pre-Rolled (It's the album) 3) Keezy's flow is crazy. But I ain't one to gossip, so hit Keezy up and make The Shop your next "Pit Stop".
