Jimmie Murphy: Clearing My Thoughts (Single Review)

“Imma Scream This Squizzy Shit Till I Finally Leave”

In the same week that his fellow Squizzy Gang member Trev Rich released “The Break” – Trev’s self-professed “Black Cloud” – Jimmie Murphy dropped “Clearing My Thoughts” and delivered a track which wouldn’t be out of place on ‘Mood God’ Joe Budden’s “Mood Muzik 4.5”. The track provokes emotion in every syllable that Jimmie spits as he portrays a love for his family that is hard to compare to any other artist than Trev and his “I Would Have Told Her” record. Usually I prefer B.More when he caresses the microphone with his vocal chords rather than emceeing, but this rap record is one of the greatest tracks I have ever heard from him and three of his tracks are already in my Top 25 most played on iTunes.

Jimmie begins clearing his thoughts by professing his love for his Squizzy Gang cohorts (“Imma scream this Squizzy shit ’til I finally leave”) ¬†before taunting an unknown adressee about his girlfriend (“When your girl come around she can’t breathe”) but as the track progresses after an awkwardly delivered (“You don’t know what can come out of it”) Kevin Ware line, Jimmie captivated me with lyricism such as “When my family gotta eat, I’m ready to die” and a touching series of bars addressed to his Brother. The emotionally resonating lyricism is assisted with near-perfect delivery as B.More showcases how personal the track is to him with unparalleled passion. In a state in which Trev Rich is consistently applauded for his take on the Mood Muzik style of Hip Hop, Jimmie is under-appreciated and undervalued in his own efforts of emotional music. “Clearing My thoughts” is an absolute gem, and I’m sure all listeners of the song will wholeheartedly agree with me.
