Tim Nihan F/ Mikey T & Top Billion – “Playa Shit” (HITP Premiere)

Pipedream Music Group and Hard In The Paint Music bring you the world premiere of “Playa Shit,” a brand new single from Reading, Massachusetts’ Tim Nihan‘s upcoming Beautiful Pain mixtape, featuring Louisiana’s Mikey T and Top Billion.  The follow-up to Nihan’s previously released lead single, “They Already Know,” blends the three emcee’s distinctive styles over southern-influenced sample laced production, paying homage to the rich subgenre known as southern hip hop.

Nihan starts off the first leg of the five-minute rap marathon, displaying an impressive flow and strong lyricism. Current Germany resider Mikey T handles the middle verse with slick wordplay, utilizing his 16 to discuss his indulgence in some of the south’s finest traditions. Billion finishes off the track with one of his best verses to date, delivering confident bars, making it known that he’s been trill way before the fad.

These polished verses combined with a well-developed, simple but catchy captivating hook solidify the track as a successful collaboration between a trio of hungry upcoming rappers.  Not only is “Playa Shit” a must listen, but it’s definitely worth a download and a spot on your summer playlist! Listen and comment below!
