It’s easier to flow over up-tempo beats for a lot of acclaimed artists. aQthegod isn’t just trying to follow along with the beat, his flows help in turning the instrumental into a song. You could call the beat on Pray for it, produced by B Young even chill-hop but it’s rare that artists shine on those type of beats and overall underestimated in regards to the fan base. It’s got a laid back sample and tight drums reminiscing boom bap hip-hop. Lyrically, artists often go for rhymes with a lighter tone, but aQthegod sets a high standard from the start - “I put the ghetto under scrutiny, and it never got through to me”. From a rappers perspective, we often see how we tend to contradict ourselves in our music but it’s rare for new MC’s to get it because you need to have perspective. aQthegod’s lyrics will go over people’s heads which goes double as he’s it’s street knowledge he’s spitting about.
The song is both about the reality of street life, which has been promoted by way too many rappers but aQthegod paints the picture like it is. It’s also a song about perseverance and the fact having the heart and your mind in the right place. Talent like this is hard to find nowadays, both lyrically and flow wise and artists like aQthegod can make it – they just need to play their cards right promoting themselves and looking to grab every opportunity that comes their way.
