"Floyd Mayweather" by Khleo Thomas from his The Next Episode mixtape
Two words: Instantly hooked. When Khleo dropped this song at the end of 2010, he was giving us all a real treat in advance. From the opening hook, to bumpin’ back track, and of course, his ingenious lyrics. He lit this thing on fire.
Khleo has every right to feel good about himself, his career, and the projects he works on and music he releases. Like he says in his song, “Always been a winner ‘cause I work my ass off. Flow like Wolverine claws, yes I’m that sharp." And it’s true; he’s always at work trying to out do himself with every record.
A nice little touch to this track is his opening narration. I thought it was pretty clever and fitting for him to be making the announcement like in a real match. Leave it to Khleo to always find something unique and put it into his songs. Whenever I hear this song I just wanna move around and rock to it. :)
I’ve been waiting for this video!! Ahhh, I loved it! Khleo wasn’t lying, you can tell in the video he knew what he was doing in the video. It looked legit and oh so good. :] I also love the credits at the end, with the classic “roll credits” type of music.
