Royce sets it off over the screeching boom-bap, delivering quick-witted bars at an intense rate. “You number one when it come to slaughtered mics, I’m tryna be number one in my son and daughter life,” he raps. “All you n***as my little rapper babies, y’all my children, y’all bit my shit and contracted rabies.” There’s some truth to the statement; it’s safe to say that Royce has quietly been influencing the game for a minute now, setting the bar for lyricism and flow. While Book Of Ryan has been promised to be his most personal album thus far, it’s clear that “Caterpillar” is dedicated to the art of bars.
Em comes through with an extended verse, which many fans might find refreshing in the wake of the more pop-friendly Revival. “You’re havin’ a little trouble fathomin’ this is actually happenin’, like Anderson Silva back when he snapped his shin in half and then had the shit hangin’ by a flap of skin after he tried to plant the shit back on the mat again,” raps Em, proving his penchant for vivid imagery.
