“Got It If You Need That” by “Q Hef 777” introduces an alternative approach to hip hop – a creative and spacious backdrop accompanies a hook that consistently reinforces the central idea. There’s a slightly haunting but easy to vibe to energy about the musical backdrop and the rhythm of that hook section, which in itself feels like the bulk of the track at first, but soon enough the verse sections seek to blow your mind with lyrical quickness and quirky wordplay. Q Hef 777 is a Musician originally born in Brazil and raised in Broward County, Florida. His skills include songwriting, production, rapping, singing, tracking/mix/master engineering.
“Got It If You Need That” is a stunning track, masterfully crafted so as to hold tight to your attention throughout, and offering multiple layers of personality and openness that allow you to feel an immediate connection with the artist. You’re able to draw your own meanings from these notably vague statements, essentially taking something very personal and making it your own. As is the calling card of a great song – a piece of artistic expression that’s incredibly intimate and honest but that simultaneously allows a wider audience to access and understand it; to take it on as being purely for them.
While you’re likely to find yourself impressed by the vocal delivery on this track, the song itself is one that inescapably weaves its way into your consciousness in a pretty unforgettable manner. It’s not easy to do that these days when so much new hip hop hits the airwaves every hour, but “Q Hef 777” has found a way – and this is done without excessive levels of volume or unnecessary drops.
The track is minimalist for the most part, standing tall on the strength of its own unique concept and confidence. That second word is something that drives the energy of this whole project – the further you get into the playlist, the faster and more intensely these lyrics pour through. So much so that a single listen or even two is far from enough to catch every idea. “Got It If You Need That” is a mighty example of this, a track that blows you away with its rap delivery and the sheer volume of words among such a calming, spacious backdrop.
“Q Hef 777” have managed to find that balance between the sound of the moment – this ever-popular and energetic approach to hip hop – and something unquestionably unique. Their sound is refreshingly original, notably simplistic from a musical perspective, but impressive in its arrangement of language. Highly likely to make waves at a live show.
