Fresh! #GlobalFaction presents… Big Frizzle — My God (@burgundybricks)

Frizzle

Totally did not expect that trappy beat to hit my speak­ers, on GlobalFaction’s chan­nel that is a rar­ity, MY GOD! The pro­duc­tion on this track is ser­i­ous, very ser­i­ous. Those dreamy keys fit the eso­ter­ic feel of the visu­al and lyr­ics.

Big Friz reminds us why it doesn’t mat­ter how long it’s been since the last video, or until the next for that mat­ter. Lyr­ic­ally, visu­ally and sound wise we’re look­ing at a 2015 clas­sic.

Big Frizzle.. “if a super­hero my name would be bars, my power would be bars, my ori­gin would be mars, wouldn’t chill with weak stars, coz a legend on par, we are, rah­hh!” Friz keeps it trill from 0 to 100 and comes to a smooth brake after 3 minutes and 16 seconds of full accel­er­a­tion.

Lyr­ic­ally, Friz is on a mis­sion to put rap­pers to test, to show that there are “far too many wastem­an spit­tin”.

“take me off, watch my big hand glide cross your face, don’t watch you lose minutes, you clock what I done there!” 

It’s impossible at that point, to deny the lyr­ic­al del­ic­acy at work with Big Friz’s bars.

Deep in the heart of Crys­tal Palace park are the Sphinx’s, the Sphinx, that eso­ter­ic sym­bol of sym­bols, and that’s where Friz drops the jew­els, it couldn’t have been more fit­ting. The visu­als are tight on this one, the pos­se rolls deep and the video cap­tures that.

Glob­al­Fac­tion must feel com­fort­able around them, Big Cakes and Non-Applix are reg­u­lars to Glob­al­Fac­tion and we see them doing rota­tions in the video. It looked like the weather wasn’t on side, but per­haps that moody, almost grey feel is what was needed for the video, either way GF showed how it doesn’t mat­ter, he will always make it work.

I’m gon­na go with a ran­dom ques­tion to the read here, inspired by the video and mes­saging. What is your take on the resur­gence of black con­scious­ness centred around Afric­an civil­iz­a­tion? By this I mean, the iden­ti­fic­a­tion with eso­ter­ic teach­ings of North­ern Africa, and from oth­er Afric­an Civil­isa­tions, many rap­pers on Glob­al­Fac­tion see these his­tor­ies as a source of unrav­el­ing West­ern Soci­ety and build­ing our new future, what do you think of this?

Let me know what you think by join­ing the dis­cus­sion here!

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
