10 Of The Best Rittz Songs
Ten Of The Dopest Rittz Tracks
Rittz is a unique character in the rap game.
During his 15 plus years perfecting his craft he has gained the ability to spit double-time raps flawlessly.
A starter on both the Slumerican & Strange Music roster, Yelawolf helped Rittz gain notoriety, then Tech N9ne put him on display and gave him the tools he needs to grow even more.
Here are The Ten Best Rittz Songs* in no particular order.
First up is my personal favorite song by Rittz, "Turn Down."
All I ask is that you press play and give it a chance. If it's the only one you listen to, that's fine. If you find that you love it and want to listen to the rest, well, that's the goal!
"Turn Down" - Official Video
The single "Turn Down" is Track #3 on Rittz' most recent album, Next To Nothing.
This track is smooth, catchy, lyrically on point, energetic, and most of all this beautiful beat (produced by Lifted) bumps like none other.
Two years in a row I got skipped on the freshman cover /
Got me feeling some type of way /
And I ain’t hating on the rappers they picked, but I’ve been headlining tours /
Selling records, no competition inside my lane.
"Turn Up Rittz!"
"Turn Down" is a triumphant anthem - the return of Rittz.
He speaks on haters, being under rated, and being over looked in the rap game.
He isn't your typical rapper; you can tell that just by looking at him.
"LAF" - Official Audio
This song is just straight up lyrical murder.
Rittz calls out all the fake fans, friends, groupies, artists and more.
He wastes no time telling them they are all "LAF" (Lame As F**k)
This ones a banger for sure.
You ain't spittin' and your music don't jam/
Try to study me like I'm a student exam/
Hard for me to take a lyricist serious/
Especially a dude in sweatpants wearing unisex Vans.
"Crown Royal" - Official Music Video
This is a very smooth, chill song.
The type of record you play when you are just kickin' it relaxing.
Or drinking too, since it's called Crown Royal and all.
We've been turned up all day long, long day off/
We gon' drink until the alcohol is gone/
Neighbors saying that they're going to call the law/
I ain't tripping on that blasé blah
"Wishin'" - Official Music Video
This song is about the hardships one faces during addiction.
Anyone who has been addicted to any type of substance will feel this one.
I wish that I could write - I wish I didn't drink/
Have to do drugs just to concentrate and think/
I wish that I could sleep, I never got a wink/
Gotta work a double when I finish I'mma stink
"Wastin' Time" - Official Audio
"Wastin' Time" Featuring Big K.R.I.T.
A record featuring fellow Southern artist, Big K.R.I.T., they speak upon how days go by faster and faster yet they are doing the same thing.
When him and his friends first started to party, they laughed and had fun with it.
Now they just sit and complain, using the drugs and booze to escape.
A real song that can be very motivational and/or influential for the younger crowd; or anyone really.
Kids my age done graduated college /
Some married some have some kids /
Most of them have credit cards and cars /
Or large houses, me I'm on that rapper s**t
"All We Know" - Official Music Video
"All We Know" Featuring Jihad
"All We Know" is a heart breaking track about the sad realities of life for many lower class, and even middle class Americans.
He speaks on drug addiction, the struggle of poverty, and most importantly the message is not to judge these people because those are the cards they were dealt.
There's only so much you can do when dealt a crappy hand, whether it's the game of Poker or real life.
It's a problem when you/
Can't afford to eat shit but a double cheese from the dollar menu/
Gotta pay in quarters/
Bitch behind the window pissed she sick of taking orders
"Sleep At Night" - Official Music Video
"Sleep At Night" Featuring Yelawolf
Rittz vents his frustrations with his girlfriend, or ex-girlfriend that is.
He complains that she has moved on too quickly while he still suffers. Many people can relate to this track, I know I sure did during my last break up.
Yelawolf sings a vengeful hook, acting as the cherry on top of a bomb sundae.
I been drinking constantly drowing in my misery/
And you been out fucking somebody else, not even missing me??/
What about all the history that we had with each other?/
Everything is damaged way too bad to recover
"Love Me" - Official Audio
"#tbt check out #LOVEME on #YOUTUBE #theartofstorytelling"
- Rittz Instagram, Jan 2015
The perfect story rap. Each verse is a different story, each going into very intricate detail about the character's situations. It's as if you know these people personally.
Rittz is talented in more than just lyrical ability, he can tell stories on top of all kinds of other talents.
Well let me tell you about Cindy and Todd/
Todd got Cindy pregnant so they moved in together to start/
A happy family but everything is falling apart/
They always arguing cause Todd is partying hard
"Heaven" - Official Audio
"Heaven" Featuring Yelawolf
A calm track laced with Yelawolf. Nothing special, just chill music.
Rittz and his Slumerican associate Yelawolf speak on things of the paranormal nature, along with just goofing off on the track.
Have you ever been to outer space?/
Tour bus living liquor bottles all over, no counter space/
Evaluating 'em I'm like what's the future's hard to calculate/
Pissed off, but you gotta look at everybody putting on a smiley face
"Walking On Air" - Official Music Video
"Walkin' On Air"
This is his triumphant sounding anthem, telling everyone he is on Cloud 9.
Oh and he did it before Rick Ross according to "Turn Down"
Here I come, fresh off tour, I bet I piss off more/
Mother f**kers that thought I quit and I was just done for/
But they was misin -- formed, cause I would just get warm/
I'm back again to crack a thicker pack of sense in sword/
I slid my tip in these pu**ies I'm 'bout to stick in the rest of it/
Started raping the rap game; I was sick of molestin' it."
