Recently, the entire hip-hop music block has been feasting, united by an authentic masterpiece, “Don’t Drop The Ball Freestyle” by none other than Dallas, TX-based rap wizard Jesse Is Heavyweight, which also marks his comeback into the music scene following a forced hiatus by the pandemic. This is the kind of jam you listen to, and you feel you have been impacted; it is a genuine gem and really encapsulates the essence of hip-hop to not only entertain but also empower. Wearing his heart on his sleeves, Jesse delivers a performance worthy of fanfare. It is little wonder why it has already amassed over two million plays on Apple Music and earned recognition from one of the biggest hip-hop platforms today, The Joe Budden Podcast.

The thing that makes this track standout and deeply relatable rests on its authenticity and rawness. Jesse packs such a powerful punch with his emotional delivery that it captures the essence of the human resilient spirit and the unwavering determination and perseverance to eclipse any challenges that may present in life’s journey, all delivered from Jesse’s own experiences.

Jesse is self-made; he took the lone road and went ahead to prove wrong all the doubters, naysayers, and all those who looked down on him, hence the lines, “I got up and left my sate nobody had to hold my hand…” and “welcome to the industry where everything’s a sham..” The emphasis is on the lines “Don’t drop the ball” which are meant to encourage, inspire, and empower anyone not to give up, at least just not yet even when it feels like the plausible thing to do.

It is true that sometimes life tests each one of us to our limits, but the last thing we can do is give in, fold under pressure, and let the setbacks win. Delivered with such raw passion over the warm and dulcet hip-hop production that is striking and dexterously executed, Jesse unleashes some smart rhymes and masterful cadence, seamlessly transitioning from one verse to the next.

The recently released visually striking music video elevates this song to new heights, perfectly complementing its thematic essence and apologue in a simple yet sufficient manner. The video was directed by the international art house, The Kindergarten Class and qualifies as art itself, underscoring the lyrical weight of the song with its captivating visuals.
