Starting 2016 off right, Rome Cee dropped this new track “By The Pound.” The beat has a woozy kind of atmospheric sound that I think works well for Rome. He tends to pack a lot of words into his bars and simpler beats do a great job to highlight his wordplay and let his vocals come forward. I also like that it sounds very current. Rome can go old school and do the 90’s sound but he is equally as strong or maybe even stronger at rhyming over more progressive tracks. As he says in this hook this is Rome Cee stripped down and on to better things.
