Big Narstie delivers a captivating 'Behind Barz'


As past NAA member Big Narstie dominates TV, he reestablishes his musical credibility with an explosive Link Up TV "Behind Barz" freestyle. Opening with a calm, relaxed flow, Narstie lullabies us into his usual powerful bars. Beginning his lyrics in confusion and doubt in his own direction possibly allows us to peek into his reality as he manages this newfound popularity and limelight. However, as is the case with many of Narstie’s raps, he lets us know straight away what the deal is:

“Style is tried and tested. Who God bless, no man curse,
so how do you think that you can match the style what I’m blessed with. Next ting.”

And with that, it’s off. Effortlessly. Lyrical paths of boastful bars, attentive stories, real life antics, wisdom, experience and philosophy, develop this freestyle into something great. For an artist who brings passion and captivation in every performance, he has most definitely not stopped with this one, covering two beats. Stream the freestyle below:
