Ever since Headie One emerged from jail last year, he’s been in go-mode. It was evident when he connected with Drake for “Only One Freestyle” which helped propel the hype surrounding his album, Edna. The rapper’s maintained a strong footing on UK’s drill scene over the years but his latest offerings have expanded the sound and shaped it into something of his own.
Over the past few months, Headie has been slowly unveiling new singles. “2 Chains” and “Pound Signs” were immediate bangers that had everyone excited for his next move.
Fortunately, he didn’t let the year pass without dropping a follow-up to Edna. Too Loyal For My Own Good puts the focus back on Headie One as he weaves through the 10-track effort with wicked flows. On “Cry,” the rapper brings some funky vibes to the table as he flips Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See.”
Headie One – Cry (prod. Scribz Riley & GRADES)
I can shut down a verse or a chorus (Chorus)
I done spent the whole summer time trappin’ out [?]
You know I got so much love for my roses
Soul for the Drillers, next time you catch me [?] to the florist (One)
All I ever wanted was some progress
Everything above and beyond is a bonus
I had armed jakes spinnin’ out my ride for some clothes
Now they gotta watch everybody toast us
Yo, it’s a celebration, young black brothers being celebrated
Elevation, no more separation
Far to plan, plan to throw, it’s a preparation
Got a thirst in the trap with no [?]
Get the ammunition for myself, preservation
And made the block lit, it’s a delegation
For my brothers, not Jonas
Now it’s 5-0 if [?] on the tour bus
