Queens-based rapper Justin Rose hits us with the premiere of his new mixtape, Water White, which was led by leaks like the Playboi Carti-featured "Speedy Gonzales." In a quote via e-mail, Rose spoke on his goal for the mixtape and the concept behind it. Just don't put him in a box.
"I wanted Water White to sound like summer nights in NY, which are for the most part pretty fuckin lit. Also, Water White is shows people that I'm different from the "typical" New York rapper or sound and that I can't be put in any one box," the NY native says. "With me and babyxwater handling the production, our only goal was to make the waviest mixtape we could put together. To really give people an idea of what it sounds like to be wavy outside of just Max B, or Chinx or French. New York is the wavy city, so if anything I wanted to shed light to a genre of music that my city has been holding down. This is my take on wavy music."
Along with the mixtape, Justin Rose is premiering the music video for the title track, shot by "Uber Everywhere" director Mike Ellwood. Watch that below and download the tape.
