“Don’t get tired on it” raps the Bronx’s Shemie Rozay. His track “City Drop” is out now and is stellar showing for an exciting new talent. Ask his friends, though, and Rozay isn’t new, just like the song, he’s been climbing up on “it” since middle school. Taking his shot and rising to the occasion, Rozay nails it in “City Drop”.
“City Drop” is written by Shem Spenser and Kevin LeSesne and is on the All Around Money Multi Media Entertainment Group label. Rozay’s biography states that he’s been influenced by such hip hop greats as Meek Mill (“Amen”), Jadakiss (“The Last Day”) and Dave East (“Keisha”). With heroes like those, it’s easy to hear their imprints on the track. He began rapping in middle school and by his teenage years, he’d already built a following on streaming services. Previous released tracks include “Club Antics”, “I Can’t Go”, “Talking To Me” and “Hollywood”. Outside of music, Rozay gives back to the at-risk youth in his community when time allows. His lyrics certainly infer he’s challenging these same youth to act in a way that is “you gotta slide up on it, better climb on it, don’t get tired on it” when it comes to their goals. The tempo’s grit and drive is contagious.
He is also rapping about the bravado, the game of life. One of the lines – “I’m about to crush this” gave me the impression he’s talking about his own plan of dominating the music business. If you watch the music video on the Multi Media Entertainment Group’s website, you will see the lavish life and the crew encouraging Rozay’s achievements. He wants the cars, the Rolex watches and lots of money. Your body shakes, your shoulders move and you get into the groove of this song. It’s a fun song and a riot of a video. There’s a slight ding-ding beat that is just crushing. It’s like chrome meeting the pavement. A rush. That beat is just stuck in my head! It’s in the song throughout, but at times you forget it’s there with the vocals. The beat has a refined taste to it, one that just lingers (in a good way!). He brings showmanship and artistry into “City Drop”.
“City Drop” garners high marks and fans of the aforementioned artists like Meek Mill and Jadakiss, oh Nelly, too, will want to add Shemie Rozay to their playlists. I think fans that love pop music like Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande could leap into this pool, too. Good music is good music. I think it’s the right song length and “City Drop” never, lack for a better term, lets the mood drop. You have to expand a little and this song allows you to let loose. Like Rozay says “you gotta slide up on it.” I could really see this song get the crowd lit, the club bumping, when it comes to a concert. It’s a show stopper and I’m ready to be in Shemie Rozay’s entourage.
