Jwalt – The Taking (Prod. Karl Kilb IV)

Rising Oakland Superstar, @officialjwalt, first single of the year, “The Taking” is not only a braggadocios anthem detailing the young rapper’s accomplishments, but an inspirationally swaggering track about achieving one’s goals in the midst of 2021’s undeniable chaos. Between the energetic beat, self assured message, and gripping ad-libs, “The Taking” fully encapsulates hip hop culture in the twenty-first century. In no way attempting to maintain his humility, Jwalt reiterates the fact that he’s “destined for greatness”, asserting that his dreams are “mine for the taking”. He makes references to The Bay Area, his hometown, as well as his responsibility as a role model in the rap game. In the same breath, the young rapper touches on the current pandemic, announcing, “I cherish the present/ cause there ain’t no telling/ so I’m living life I ain’t living in fear”. In just under three and a half minutes, Jwalt perfectly captures his hustling spirit, all while coercing his listeners to adopt the same drive, and uncontrollably move to the beat while doing so.
