One of Symba’s Favorite Freestyles is Drakes’s “Fire in the Booth”
Symba, who put up a strong freestyle performance in 2022, has now
praised Drake for the masterful performance he gave on Charlie Sloth’s “Fire in the Booth series.”
The Oakland native praised Drizzy’s raw freestyle in an interview with HipHopDX, noting that it was the first episode of Charlie Sloth’s acclaimed series he had ever seen.
“Yeah, I think that Drake freestyle was cold,” he said. “It’s definitely different but I think it was still raw and dope in a sense because that was the first time I heard of Fire in the Booth, when I seen Drake on there …
He added: “I just liked how Drake went up there and just got in his London bag. He just started poppin’ it.”
Royce Da 5’9′′, Freddie Gibbs, Black Though, and other artists received roses as Symba continued to list his other favorite freestyles.
Royce on Hot 97, Royce on L.A. Leakers, King Los’ L.A. Leakers, Freddie Gibbs’ L.A. Leakers, Benny The Butcher’s L.A. Leakers, Black Thought Hot 97 with Funk Flex, DaBaby’s L.A. Leakers was dope,” he listed. “When he left the bowling alley that night — that was fire … I just seen YG go up there, his was dope too. Meek Mill’s Hot 97, TSU Surf on Bars on I-95.”
Symba stated that he watches as many freestyles from his fellow rappers as he can to get ideas and expand his rap vocabulary.
“I watch everyone. That’s what makes mine stand out,” he admitted. “Because anytime I go up to a platform I watch every single one. I watch they demeanor, what they was talking about and I try to find something nobody ever said and hasn’t been done. I always try to find that angle of what’s not been said and then I go in there and say it.”
In terms of his musical output, Symba released his Results Take Time album in September, hosted by DJ Drama. He performed his freestyle skills on a number of shows, including Sway’s Universe, Funk Flex on Hot 97, and a few others to support the project.
