When Iman Shumpert spits his own version Future‘s half of “Life is Good,” you could tell that it’s because he really resonates with that title.
He dropped his second mixtape and first with Gangsta Grillz, “Joyride,” a couple of hours ago and despite what your opinion on rapping ball players may be, there’s definitely something here.
His remixes of Pop Smoke‘s “Dior” and Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth’s “They Reminisce Over You” exemplify what’s best about this tape: it feels like being in the middle of a really fun time freestyling with the homies with some horticultural aids.
It seems Shumpert is most comfortable over boom bap production, but what else do you want from the guy? He’s not even a rapper.
You can stream “Joyride” with DJ Drama on Iman’s Soundcloud. Where does he rank on your list of best NBA rappers?
