It’s been over two years since Boy Better Know rapper Frisco delivered his last project, Back 2 Da Lab Volume 5 but today he returns with his latest single ahead of the release of his upcoming full-length The Familiar Stranger, dropping October 16. On the triumphant, chest-pounding “Red Card,” Frisco reunites with his BBK family, tapping Skepta, JME, Jammer and Shorty for solid guest verses delivered rapid-fire to keep pace with up-and-coming Australian producer Trooh Hippi’s instrumental. The beat even samples Daughters of Reykjavík’s “Fool’s Gold.”
The veteran emcee has been active as a lyricist since 2003 and was a founding member of Boy Better Know back in 2006. He allows for his contemporaries to share the spotlight first, then finishes up the song with a stellar verse himself. “I jump on a riddim and direspec’ it/ F*ck with my mates get sent to the medics/ Diss me online then see me and beg it… Red Card,” he raps.
