With Cut it’s not just his lyrics but his lavish flow and production that makes his songs hot. He has a good rap voice and it flows buttery smooth over the various beats that he uses. His vocals are like spicy seasoning over gourmet food. On “High”, Cut switches his flow up and down continuously, while his charisma, sheer power and energy of his delivery is captivating.
