Underground rapper Papi LoMein has been making moves this year. With an EP and several singles released periodically, the DMV (DC-Maryland-Virginia) artist is building a discography for the hip hop masses.
Last week, Papi released “LoMein Freestyle“, a witty track that follows in the footsteps of all the incredible freestyles released in 2017, like “Mask Off” (or On) and “Unforgettable” from your favorite rappers like Oswin Benjamin and Dave East.
LoMein incorporates instrumentals into his freestyle (and other tracks) that are similar to Drake-influenced artists, which deserves him a spot on OVO Radio alongside Majid Jordan. Additionally, this track is self-focused on growth and making moves, just as the previous mentioned freestyles are:
“Used to listen to Shady, a white boy on some n***a shit so amazing, I’m spittin’ like Chance can’t nobody phase me / I had to get it out the gutter, ain’t nobody made me.
The “LoMein Freestyle” solidified my opinion that Papi LoMein is the best rapper I’ve found through SoundCloud in 2017, purely for his push to create mainstream sound with original lyricism in every song. You can find Papi on Soundcloud and Twitter @papilomein.
