Last week Gerald Walker released a brand new track called "Rain.Hail.Sleet.Snow" that takes the United States Postal Service's motto and adapts it to the grind of the modern man artist's hustle.

In standard Walker style, Gerald takes time to carefully layer his singing vocals while bringing out his chopping style of rapping, something he employs on occasion. It is very reminiscent of both Krazy Bone and Bizzy Bone at times.

"Rain," produced by Taylor Gang's Cardo On The Beat, can be heard here.
