Styles P Keeps It Smooth on New Song “Hold the Ghost”
Styles P is so nice. The D-Block O.G. does his thing over the instrumental for Smoke DZA and Pete Rock's “Hold the Drums" that originally featured Royce da 5’9″. If you haven't heard it, go listen immediately to Smoke and Pete's fantastic album Don’t Smoke Rock and bump Ghost's new track below.
For "Hold the Smoke," Styles drops some wisdom over the smooth instrumental: "When you can't fathom what's valuable/No an expert infallible/The best score is fallible/I just hit the spliff dumpin' bricks in the Chevy Malibu/At the Yardie spot just eatin' a little callaloo/Get you ready for war, that's what a battle do," he raps. The record was the perfect song for P to show off why he's one of the big dogs in hip-hop.
Earlier this month, Styles teamed up with Talib Kweli for a new EP titled The Seven. The EP shows off why Kweli and Styles have enjoyed such long careers while featuring guest appearances from Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, Rapsody, Common and Chris Rivers. “Nine Point Five” featuring Sheek Louch, Jadakiss and Niko was the EP's lead single.
