The track explodes as a near-seven minute display of lyrical mastery courtesy of Strange Music’s finest. Keeping up a tradition, Tech assembled an Avengers-level cohort of Hip-Hop talent for “Roll Call,” repping both the label’s present and storied past. Whistles chirp, finger-snaps pop, and the bass bumps underneath one stunning verbal display after another.
Climaxing with a catchy chorus, Tech takes a victory lap and proclaims: “I’m never gonna be defeated, money never gonna be depleted,” flaunting much-earned boss level confidence.
The accompanying visual might just be one of his biggest yet. This cohort awakens following a wild reunion party at Strange Music Headquarters in Kansas City, but the mayhem continues. Dressed in their finest black tie fits, they spit bars in the studio and in the halls surrounded by hazy partygoers. The camera floats through the building like the infamous tracking shot in GoodFellas as the Strange Music family gets wild.
“Roll Call” notably stands out as the first collabo release in seven years since the eighth album in the series, “Strange Reign,” dropped in 2017.
