So dope a line he had to run it twice, right from jump. Rivers rocks another freestyle. This one he actually dropped earlier. It’s over A$AP Rocky’s instrumental for “F**k Sleep.” Chris calls his version “I Am He.”

Chris Rivers – “Can’t Fight The Healing”

That son of a Pun, Rivers! Back with another freestyle. Retouching that Mac Miller jawn this time around.

Chris Rivers rhyming some science over Mac Miller’s “Fight The Feeling” with his own rendition “Can’t Fight The Healing” where Chris paints the picture of someone with a broken heart attempting to find connections elsewhere which are ultimately shallow and unfulfilling. It’s clear that there is a need of time for healing.

CHRIS RIVERS – CAN’T FIGHT THE HEALING

Chris Rivers – “This Is Depression”

Well, if somebody’s gotta touch the ‘it’ beat of the week, it may as well be Chris Rivers. He’ll do it justice. Not sure any visuals could come close to the brand of crazy Donald Glover was smoking for his video for “This Is America” though… but listen and visualize Rivers doing his thing on the beat entitled “This Is Depression.”

CHRIS RIVERS – THIS IS DEPRESSION

Chris Rivers – “Atrium” (Freestyle)

Riverrrrs!! Rock with this new gravelly rawness in the form of freestyle rhyming over J. Cole’s beat.

Chris Rivers blesses us this week with a freestyle over J. Cole’s “ATM”, telling a story about the influence of money on someone’s decisions in life. The journey is filled with the wordplay and flows we know and love with the title “Atrium” playing off “ATM” and money’s weight on the heart.

CHRIS RIVERS – ATRIUM (FREESTYLE)

Chris Rivers – “I Like It Like Rap”

Is there a beat that Chris Rivers won’t rap over? Don’t answer. That’s rhetorical. Hear him go in over this Cardi B jawn in what he calls “I Like It Like Rap.” Is it good? DON’T ANSWER… until you press play (but you already know… It’s Rivers)!

CHRIS RIVERS – I LIKE IT LIKE RAP

Chris Rivers – “You The Man” (Freestyle)

How could I be a phony? I only act how I feel…

Yeah. Rivers rapping that real AND letting y’all know how he feels. Get ready to listen again. The rhyme is sweet and short. Run it back ’nuff times to get what dude is saying.

Chris is back this week with another freestyle this time over Kanye’s “ Everything I Am” which Chris clearly feels everything he is, is the Man. On “You The Man” Chris shows the gradual transcendence from that boy to the man in his own eyes facing his own internal obstacles which ultimately became the reasons for his greatness.

And I ain’t loved myself since I loved you.

Woooooo! Deep truth! Press play.

CHRIS RIVERS – BROKEN PROMISES FEAT. SURACE
