Pressa’s music is often fluorescent and sparkly despite his tough, dark subject matter. Thus, it makes sense for him to team up with fellow Torontonian FridaiNite for “Flashy,” a song that’s lit, but in the sense that it’s about actual light sources. It’s also the latest chapter in hip-hop that quantifies confidence through a cool, catchy adjective (“Ridin’ Dirty,” “So Icey,” etc.).
“We were out in London and I was sent an instrumental titled ‘Flashy,'” says FridaiNite. “So I just came up with a hook right on the spot that Pressa was feeling, he banged out hot verses and that was that.” Look out for FriDaiNite’s upcoming project ‘I’m Fried Dai & Nite’ which is dropping September 1st.
Along with “Flashy” Pressa also drops the visuals for his K Koke featured track “D Ting Set” which appears on the Koke’s recently released mixtape, Pure Koke IV.
