Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Poison Pen
Title: BK's Fat Boy
Label: EMVEEZ/Gold Dust

Creeping up on 2009 like a case of swine flu, the self-professed fat boy of Brooklyn may not be mistaken for the new Biggie Smalls, but his style is still infectiously fun. "Whether, pins and denim or suit and tie/I bleed, venom, for Do or Die/Don't think too hard or flash too many signs/Don't rap too much, just givin the time." DJ Static's track is simple and symphonic, uptempo with a nice switch-up on the chorus to a slow soul break saying "beware, young girl." Pen brims with confidence and brags that "blockin ain't an option" when he's headed your way, and he's got the charisma and distinctive flow (a little raspy, a little bit Funk Flex, in a good way) to back it up. I'm not sure if his lyrics hold muster over the long haul given this is only 2:18, but future singles will prove out whether he's the real deal or not.
