Symba is one of the most exciting voices from the Bay Area, and on Friday (May 19) he showed off that skill in a couple of different ways. First, he shared his boisterous, triumphant, and perceptive new track "Top G," in which he spits about the life he came from and the contrast from the life he lives now. In fact, he takes specific aim at the differences between living a street-oriented life in rap and how rappers can make even more money from it as a result. Over a horn-heavy beat and booming bass and percussion, the 24-year-old rhymer gave fans a focused, well-paced, and deceptively profound comparison. However, that wasn't the only way in which he reflected on these themes this week.
In addition, he also shared a snippet of a track or verse on Instagram that centers around the Ja Morant controversy, where he flashed a gun for the second time in two months and faced another suspension from the Memphis Grizzlies. With that topic in mind, Symba is able to speak on these themes of street life and wealth in a specific way. "But I get it, this life we living is different," he raps. "We flex in front of the cameras to show the ghetto we did it. Some of us like to flex, just to show the rest they can get it. But you glorifying a life you ain't really out here living. I mean my n***a, you up 200 million, and you about to risk it all to show n***as you bought a pistol.
