Corn 220 is a rapper from Locust Grove T who released his single titled “Fanta Freestyle” off his album, “220 B!tch”. “Fanta Freestyle” immediately begins with a banging introduction giving you no time to adjust and instantly settling you into the song. As soon as I started playing this record, my coworker goes “That’s catchy!” and this was an indicator to me that “Fanta Freestyle” grasps your attention the second you hear the witty punchlines. The hook is repetitive yet addicting due to the cheeky and audacious use of wordplay with a fun and popular flavored drink. The hook says, “I'm dripping cherry fanta, strawberry banana, pockets full of hunnids, dripping berry fanta, pounds of apple Fanta, Dolce and Gabbana, pineapple and banana” he knows how to lyrically translate the meaning behind his metaphors which makes you respect the caliber of his songwriting. The beat lays down the foundation of the song and helps support the charismatic and upbeat energy it’s equipped with. I can see many people blasting “Fanta Freestyle” in their cars and around their friends while repeating the quick-witted lyrics in the addictive hook. Corn 220 may have created the next mainstream hit, only time will tell.
