Emerging artist T-Shyne showcases his effortless knack for storytelling on latest release, “Top 5.” The accompanying music video is simple and straightforward with the rapper as the focal point, spitting his verses with a laid-back demaneor. His rhymes are conversational with a gritty confidence.
“Top 5” begins with T-Shyne rapping, “The way I’m ballin’ they gon’ have to put up on SportCenter, got all of my haters mad because they know I’m a rack spender.” The braggadocious energy spews out of his mouth with a nonchalant charisma. His bars are fast and structured, contradicting the slow passive beat. Subtle bass pops in and out with a classic hip-hop sound. He boasts, “Top 5 and I keep the bands on me.” Despite the track’s mellow vibe, the rapper’s cocky jabs pick up the pace.

His upcoming project, Confetti Nights is executive produced by NBA star, Kevin Durant and slated to be released later this year. With a project on the way and a handful of collaborations with mainstream rappers, hip-hop fans can anticipate hearing more from T-Shyne throughout 2022.
