Emil “Get a Grip”

Dominican Republic born, Bronx-raised rapper, Emil is preparing to release his album, Perfect Timing on October 19th. The latest single from the album is “Get a Grip.” My biggest criticism of Emil has been that he sounds too much like Drake. While that is still an issue, especially on the first verse and hook, the second verse shows some real progress. He starts of going double-time but then settles in to a flow that works around the beat in an interesting way.
