Last year, San Diego native Rossi Rock released one of the most underrated projects of the year in Agassi. Showcasing slick wordplay on tracks like “19&55” & the Bodega Bamz assisted, “Suav City PT. II” while also highlighting his ability to make the pen bleed with tracks like, “2002” & “Never Sure“; the TanBoys affiliate used a strong 2016 to spring board into a fruitful new year. Kicking the year off with the style, Rock dropped a simple yet wavy new visual for the track, “BELLY 17“, featuring National City’s Saviorself.
Paying homage to the cult classic flick of the same name, Saviorself and Rock tear this one to pieces. After a strong opening verse from Saviorself that serves as sort of a lyrical alley-up, Rock comes in with his best Shawn Kemp impression to absolutely body the short track. “The main chambelan, bask in my ambiance” kicks off a verse of the month quality set of bars from Rossi that displays an impressive evolution for the San Diego emcee.
Check out the visual below and be sure to keep an eye on San Diego, which has been producing some fantastic music.
