Copywrite has made a name for himself as a battle-rapper, but as of late, the Columbus emcee has decided to live his life in a more spiritual manner. God Save the King shows his growth in a nutshell.
On Swaggot Killaz, Copywrite takes his place as a monster on the mike and can probably rip your favorite radio rapper to pieces. Copy is full of clever punchlines and quoteables. He also brings along Mhz emcee Jakki Da Motamouth. While battle rap music is prevalent in this release, the album is almost the perfect definition of balance.
After the battle-driven Swaggot Killaz we get a more personal and introspective track in Sorrow, which features Don Jaga and Columbus colleague Illogic. This track is easily a favorite on the album. The beat, produced by Stu Bangas, fits the lyrics of Copy and Illogic to perfection. On this track we get a look into his life and you can hear the struggle that he’s had dealing with the death of his parents and other life problems.
The only real criticism of the album was the Yo! MTV Raps track, it didn’t really seem to fit in with the project. While Copy ripped the last verse on the track, the rest of the track just felt out of place.
On Workahol, Stu Bangas returns with another amazing beat with Copywrite coming in and ripping the beat to pieces. This track is battle-rap track is infused with the underground emcee’s anthem.
A Talk With Jesus is another favorite track. It's a great way to close out the album. If you haven’t been informed, Copy, for a while now, has been turning his life toward Christ. This track stands for the crossroads, it illustrates Copy talking to Jesus. A Talk With Jesus is the loudest on the album. Copy is questioning things that we all have, from how to handle enemies, what success really is and more.
God Save the King is a dope release. People have complained about how many guests are on the album but Copy brought a decent number of people and wasn’t overshadowed by anyone. The production was on point and the there was a good balance in lyrical content. I don’t know what’s next for Copywrite, but God Save The King is a hip-hop fan’s album, if you like Hip hop, you will enjoy this record.
