After he killed it at the BET Hip Hop Awards cypher, newcomer Joyner Lucas received a co-sign from industry heavyweight and iconic rap veteran Busta Rhymes, who joins Lucas on “JUMANJI.”
“JUMANJI” finds both Lucas and Busta spitting straight animal-house savagery as they go bar for bar. The production provides the perfect soundscape to showcase Lucas’ lyrically climactic delivery, which is complimented by his aggressive flow. Lucas is one of the few emcees I’ve heard who can have Busta Rhymes jump on a record and not be upstaged; Busta makes light work of his verse, and delivers swiftly and quickly, finishing out the track with deadly cobra-like precision, but Joyner Lucas still reigns supreme as the king of the jungle on this one.
