With a collaborative EP on the way with producer and engineer Kevin Rolly, surefire lyricist Sayzee drops off the new “Who Run It” freestyle.
The instrumental, origianally produced by DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia, was brought back into the limelight after Chicago G Herbo artist freestyled over the classic beat live on K104 FM (a Dallas, TX radio station).
“The beat’s newfound popularity is a testament to Three 6 Mafia’s enduring influence, but the deluge of new versions is also fresh and fun. It’s turned into a digital cypher with some genuinely thrilling moments, and it just keeps growing organically.” – The FADER
After snippets of the on-air performance went viral, Drake enocouraged Herbo to release a longer version of the freestyle. Not one to miss out an opportunity, Herbo wasted no time getting a “full version” of the song posted and since then the whole thing has blown up.
And that’s where Sayzee comes in – joining a growing list of artists that have laid down some serious work on the beat, including Young M.A, Trippie Redd, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, Dave East, Vado, Jimmy Wapo, and more. Even Three 6 Mafia original Juicy J took part, even though he was featured on (and co-produced) the original.
We asked Sayzee about his inspiration to get in on the action:
“I watched G Herbo post his. I’ve always loved Three 6 Mafia and look up to DJ Paul so I thought, ‘fuck it, I might as well drop one too.'”
After performing last night in Toronto for the UPN6XT Showcase. If you missed him there, you’ll have more chances to see him live in May and June. He’s performing live in London, Ontario on May 12 (venue and additional details to be announced), and he’s hosting a party in Mississauga on May 25. Then on June 29, the YFRWN-rapper will be back in Toronto for a show at 6ix Made.
Take in his new “Who Run It” freestyle below, and stay tuned for the Sayzee and Kevin Rolly’s Holy Smoke EP which will be dropping in the near future.
