The 5th Throwback Thursday post comes from a more underground artist. Novi Novak is a talented rapper from Chicago. He came out with his first mixtape, Hibernation’s Over, in 2011, so he’s still pretty new to the game. “I Said Go,” released in late 2010, is by far my favorite off that mixtape, and it could be one of my favorites in my whole library. The hook is an overlooked aspect of rap songs because it’s often hard to do with success. The ability to make a good chorus, however, is a skill Novi Novak definitely possesses, shown clearly in this song. The beat is also great as Novi shows off his flow and lyrical abilities.
