Kirko Bangz - Progression 3
We premiered Kirko's latest tape on August 12th, and it's been doing big numbers ever since. Led by the Houston anthem "Cup Up Top Down", which features Z-Ro, Paul Wall and Slim Thug, the project's main focus seems to be turning up and enjoying the good life, which is what summer is meant for, after all. Other features include Wale, Trinidad Jame$, YG, Nipsey Hussle and French Montana, with diverse and predominantly chill production from Jahlil Beats, Trakksounds, KE, Sound Mob and more. There's a fairly balanced mix of straight tracks, slow jams and bangers.
This 2013 XXL Freshman is one of the more noteworthy acts to emerge from the Texas in a minute, and Progression 3 has definitely been in heavy rotation since its release, in the South and beyond. Can you dig it?
