Tito Lopez - "Pound Cake" (Freestyle) - {Audio Download}

Tito Lopez’s first words tell the story. When he was less than a year old, the Gulfport, Mississippi native was sitting in his high chair and said, “Wild, wild, west,” the chorus of a popular Kool Moe Dee song at the time. Flabbergasted, his mother declared that one day her son would be a rapper.
Fast forward to 2012 and Lopez’s mother’s words have proven prophetic. The Capitol Records signee is in the midst of recording his debut studio album and has already gotten the endorsement of Dr. Dre, Sha Money XL and the Dungeon Family, and has worked with such platinum producers as Organized Noize (OutKast, TLC), Mr. DJ (OutKast, Common) and DJ Toomp (T.I., Ludacris).
Building off the momentum of a string of acclaimed mixtapes, including 2010’s King With No Crown, Lopez rips through his new material with the precision of a lyrical sniper, deftly balancing top-tier wordplay and punchlines with food for thought. The raw “Conversation With Tito,” for instance, is a grimy cut where Lopez acts as though he’s talking to the listener, while the Mr. DJ-produced “Got That Shit” features Lopez at his most optimistic.  Tito is one of those artist that come around not too often a truly talented artist, checkout his "Pound Cake"Freestyle below.

That’s the most carefree record I’ve got,” he says. “It’s really just supposed to be something fun. It really was a joke. It’s the total opposite of how I was growing up. It’s like a day in your life when everything is going right for you.- Tito Lopez
