Just naming a song 'Jay Z, Kanye, Esco.' wasn't enough for Amir Obè, instead he writes rhymes about how each of the three artists has influences and affected him, and not just from afar. His NYLZ-provided backtrack-- warped UB40 sample and all--is worthy of a star, and he doesn't come across as a starstruck dreamer for long.

Obè spills gripes and details on the way the modern music business works, and strips all of the glamour from co-signs and sit-downs with Shawn Carter with a track that draws a line between passion and reality.

'Jay Z, Kanye, Esco.' is the first single from Amir Obè's upcoming Detrooklyn mixtape, stream it below.
