Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: E.S.G. f/ Chamillionaire
Title: Soldier
Label: Screwed Up Click

As a Southern rap pioneer E.S.G. deserves accolades and props. As the artist behind misleading mixtape releases he deserves none. Where does "Soldier" fall between the two? Well the producer on this leak isn't credited, but the sound is akin to something you'd hear on a major label Chamillionaire release, and that's a good thing. Speaking of Cham, he brags on this track that he's got a "Presidential black card like I'm Barack" and his competitors "act as fruity as a strawberry banana smoothie." Not everybody could get away with these lines, but the charismatic Chamillionaire makes it work and even sings the hook. E.S.G. plays to Chamillitary by spitting some actual armed forces rap: "Now look how many soldiers in Iraq die every day/While we whip the Coupe with two hands, they dyin in the Sudan/This song ain't for ringtones, this one for my true fans!" Well congratulations E.S.G., you won one back with this rap.
