Isiah Raschad has shared the Kenny Beats-produced ‘Score’ featuring SZA, and 6lack, which is as good as it sounds on paper.
The new single is from Raschad’s latest album, The House Is Burning, which also features appearances from names like Lil Uzi Vert, Smino, Jay Rock and many more.
On SZA and 6lack’s verse, they trade potent blows as the duo spit: “And I just decided, You ain’t worth my time, Can’t get you off my mind, Can’t risk, little that I given up, But you move in silence, They know you dirty, you private, You over your time limit, Baby, you know you have to score, You know every day a n***a get right-right with you.”
After his acclaimed debut album, Raschad fell off the rails and turned to alcohol. The House Is Burning sees the rapper deal with his recovery in a bid to begin building himself back up after he self-sabotaged the success he carved out for himself.
“I took it seriously, but I was drunk in the studio and trying my best to make my confidence swell way larger than it actually was at the time,” Raschad said to The Fader about his struggles.
“I couldn’t pull off even acting like I wanted to rap for money, or like I wanted to rap to express myself. I didn’t know exactly how to put into words what I felt.”
