Erica Banks – “Gossip Folks Freestyle”
Erica Banks knows what’s going on on TikTok. She freestyles to the looping woodwinds of Missy Elliott’s “Gossip Folks,” while the rapper delivers the flows and dunks. She would be speechless in awe of her prowess in an argument, but she wouldn’t be able to intervene anyway. Banks’ voice is naturally a little husky, but here it sounds like she puffed her cigar before entering the booth. A growl near her adds teeth to her menace. We almost forget that this is not a scripted track until she reminds us.
With artists releasing songs at a breakneck pace, it’s hard for the average hip-hop head to keep track of everything. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post highlighting the songs you need to hear.
