Proud Miami-native Warlok discharges aggressive rhymes in his latest single, "Dade County Lyricist." With a horrorcore approach, Warlock showcases his battle-esque lyricism, proving that it's not all palm trees and sunshine in the M.I.A. The production, courtesy of Ag Lyonz of Live Free and Miami Beat Wave fame, combines dark, striking guitar chords with crunchy drums, topped with a ghostly screwed chorus. The visuals for "Dade County Lyricist" will be available mid-October, as Warlok continues finalizing tracks on his upcoming street album.

Donwill of Tanya Morgan says the message of the song is that "you've gotta use fear as fuel. Getting uncomfortable helps you learn who you really are."
