Philthy Rich just dropped some fire over a classic sample previously used by the likes of YG, Drake, and even Kendrick Lamar. For those keeping up with the disses Philthy Rich and Mozzy have been trading back and forth, it’s important to be up on the song that sparked the exchange. In, “Don’t Forget,” Philthy Rich samples, “Closer,” by his fellow Oakland artist Goapele. Some may remember this sample from Drake’s, “Closer to My Dreams.” Although this was not dropped as an official diss, throughout the song you can tell Rich is taking aim at somebody.
“Don’t Forget” is an arsenal of no hooks, just straight bars. Philthy Rich takes shots with lines like, “I can’t reply to every sucka that mention my name/n*ggas really clout chasin’ and searchin’ for fame/ hate on a rich n*gga you gon’ die broke/ all blue faces baby on the dead locs.” All in all, Philthy bodied this; it’s good to hear him spit bars like these. Even though this track is fuego, we hope these disses just stay on wax and don’t go beyond that.
