I've talked about my admiration for the G.I.A.N.T.S. Music crew in articles on this website before but it can't be overstated. Vision aka Dr. Knox aka Medicated Music is probably the best freestyle rapper I know but that doesn't cover what makes him a veteran crowd-pleaser of the community by a long shot.
He's a beast on the mic whether it's off the dome drunk as fuck outside of the beat showcase, rocking with his Grizzly State counterpart Os One, making beats with Mando the DJ or hosting an event with artists and stoners, at the tender age of 30 Vision aka Matthew Golden is an MC's MC who has garnered respect from OGs far and wide.
Being a nerd for content by the Giants squad, I couldn't help but notice the uptick in work from Mr. Golden as of late, firstly with his new battle with Taz on King of the Dot...truly a brutal sight to behold. He spazzes but stays in control, he goes psycho but stays intentional and most importantly he raps his ass off while being funny as hell. You don't want to battle the Vision, trust me.
Secondly his new single with Beazie Beats and Young Freaza "Flippin' Packs" goes hard af, is also stony and chill, and most importantly is supposed to the single to his upcoming new EP?? Make sure you peep that and the EP to come, this I.E. vet doesn't disappoint.
