As for the Undisputed lyricist, Mista Books, this isn’t a project with a lofty goal to meet; it’s an endurance test, with Cypha Box as the Director of this video. You can’t call Mista Books anything other than sincere.
On “Unnecessary Roughness”, a track from his gloriously grimy 2019 album Hard Cover, the lyricist/Emcee made fans a promise other rappers might solely use as a flex. This song which was craftily produced by MHP, crunches on vocal samples from Guru, Notorious BIG etc.
This would be a boast for the ages, but Mista Books’s snarl has always meant business. His raps are stoic, wordy and clear-eyed, cleaving their way through street corners with ferocity.
