Sticky MA arrives with his third song of the year and this time he is not alone. Rojuu, who we all expected to see with Sticky at some point, complements him perfectly in this new cut.
Sticky MA from Madrid is once again active in terms of releases. At the end of July he released “Kasei”, with a trap sound but without that typical structure. Now back with Fabianni and I-Ace in production, Sticky has invited Rojuu for his new premiere.
Although they are quite different artists, something made us think that these two artists would look great together on a track . It is the same that they must have thought, since even in the title of the song they show it.
But we’ll talk about that later. The important thing is the musical and is that “Guts & Griffith” is a complete banger. In this case, we do hear a typical trap but it does not go unnoticed at all for several reasons. His catchy chorus is one of them, where Sticky MA shows his spite towards someone in a melodic and energetic way. If we also take into account the musical production right at this point in the song, it becomes an unbeatable chorus. The beat itself is a loop that hypnotizes us, but in the chorus we can hear a jet of sound from behind, which has that kind of sidereal sound that adds a lot of strength.
Going more fully into the chemistry between the two collaborators and the concept of the song, we can discover that the name “Guts & Griffith” is not chosen lightly. Guts and Griffith are two characters from the Berserk manga.
In the history of this manga, they are the protagonist and antagonist respectively, although in the beginning they were best friends. Later, the twists in the manga’s plot turn the tables and the one who seemed good becomes the bad one and vice versa.
We don’t know if Sticky and Rojuu wanted to embody these characters in the song or if it is a metaphor for the relationships that have hurt them, which they talk about in the song itself. Be that as it may, in the lyrics there are multiple references, many of them to the manga.
At the beginning of the first verse Sticky refers to the weight of a sword (like the one carried by these fictional characters) and also that “my green heart lights up”, with “Green Heart” being the one that many point out as the title of their next project. Rojuu, in his verse, also refers to soldiers who are dying and directly to Guts with the phrase “I feel Guts with the sword, I want to go for you.”
A curious story behind the concept but above all a great song , which leaves us wanting more Sticky and more collaborations in the future with Rojuu. Listen to Guts & Griffith (feat. Rojuu) below.
