David Versis: Drafted

If you agree that Drake is the ‘Sultan of the City’ than David Versis is the thief in the streets with a vandalistic flow. Arabian Nights metaphors aside, Versis is back on his beast-mode with “Drafted.” This collection of B-sides precedes his highly-anticipated mixtape “Hate to Say It”; but this 8 track prequel does a lot more than just set the stage.

Like any rapper Versis enjoys swag-splashing as much as possible, but in reality he is an artist who considering his mastery is considerably humble. Since being introduced to his music a month ago I’ve finally had time to properly digest his work. The problem is instead of finishing with his offerings I’ve inherited his hunger.

Luckily my impatience has been rewarded! While I wait for “Hate to Say It” I’ve got “Drafted” to tweet along to.

If this is your introduction to Versis let me offer a synopsis of his style: he honors the local bravado brought by Drake; is relentless with his metaphors and syllables; and he’s addictively quotable.

If this is your introduction to Drafted let me provide a bias breakdown: his braggadocious approach on “Kill a Dilla Beat” is awe-inspiring; “Favourite Position” is going to have me retweeting lines for weeks; and “Vader Flow” is a gem well-deserving of a life on wax!

Good job fam, V’s up!

      Agreed! He got dirty on that beat. It’s crazy what he is capable of, and it’s crazy how many people are sleeping on Versis. However, thanks to Chris we here at Dreamland got his back for sure.

      As for that Madlib/Dilla you know even I’ll listen to that quality of underground. Speaking of which, whatever happened to One Be Lo? Dude was the coolest kid and a monster on the mic. XXL needs to make a milk carton.
