Chicago rapper Famous Dex has been making noise in the underground lately, mainly due to his viral song ‘2 Times‘. Rich the Kid’s protégé has now teamed up with ASAP Rocky for his brand new single ‘Pick It Up’.
“Pick It Up” was something very different for me. Especially getting ASAP [Rocky] on the record is a big, big look for me. It was kind of different. I did it, and it took time. I’m more of a freestyle rapper, and more of a new wave. I’m not like a Jay Z writer or a Nas, so I just go in there and do my thing. I go off energy,” Dexter told Complex.
When the sample hits, you feel like you’re going to get served a straight soulful East Coast beat but what happens right after surprises you. It’s a very well done instrumental. Stream the song below.
