A nasty marching band beat absolutely shines in "I am a Rider," a dirty bit of street music characterized by a war-drum snare, a dark funky bassline, key samples, and singsong raps. The vocal track could afford to be mixed up a bit louder; currently, it takes a major back seat to the omnipresent drum tracks. From what I can hear, however, it sounds like Wisconsin-based Arthur Looby is rhyming about the typical thug life using braggadocio slang. His style, however, is unique in the sense that it always has a direct relation to the beat, often going back and forth in a sort of call-and-response. This really makes the track feel stronger as a whole, as well as establish a co-dependency between beat and lyrics (which isn't always the case in hip-hop).
