Pivot Gang – Houdini. When you listen to rap music these days, there’s something vocally evocative about pairing a sample-based instrumental and solid bars. This attribute is usually associated with the golden-era come and gone, and although there any many who still abide by the classic sonic aesthetic, and you’d be wise to refrain from labeling them “old soul.” One of such is, Saba and the Pivot Gang who are anything but oldies.
Saba and the Pivot Gang has been busy lately and they have just dropped their latest offering titled Two-Piece Tour Pack. The compilation featured two songs, Houdini, and SoHo Freestyle.
Saba once again kicks things off on this one. MfnMelo of the gang makes sure to pay homage to a classic, borrowing a line from the timeless Ay Bay Bay. “A little ratchet, ayy babay,” he spits, following the opening verse. “This is for them white folks, gangstas and them thugs.” Closing things out is Joseph Chilliams, who pairs his more powerful bars with some humor, spitting lines like “at Family Tree, tryna get something to eat, like self-defense class, she go straight for the D.” Overall, “Houdini” is lined with quotables from top-to-bottom, as to be expected when the Gang comes out to play.

Pivot Gang – Houdini Ft. TheMIND
At Family Tree, tryna get something to eat
Like self-defense class, she go straight for the D
Ass got me on brick, that’s what they threw at Dr. King
Ask to lift up my shirt, like it’s caught up on the swing
