Rich Homie Quan- Narcotics
Rich Homie undoubtedly gets Future comparisons but I think I fuck with him more than Future for whatever reason, I’m not sure. Anyways, this past week the ATLien dropped two new tracks, one which was taken as a Future diss “Another Me” and this one. While the latter got more views, this one I enjoyed more, as Homie spits about all the narcotics he sells. “Type Of Way” is catchy as hell, is he the next…Future?
Boldy James- Books Feat. Kook Kashcow
Boldy James treated fans with a new mixtape this past week, Jammin’ 30: In The Morning. The surprise was about time, as it’s been more than a year since his last free effort Consignment: Favor For A Favor. This new tape shows that Boldy is still experimenting with a defining sound for himself, but the bars are still on point, sticking to his usual gangsterism.“Books” was one of the stand outs, in my opinion, with a great beat from Dre Butterz that's filled with string instruments but interspersed with gunshots and modern electronic noises-- it makes for a cool mix. Boldy's got all the meanings of "Books" down pat on this one, all stemming from his drug dealing endeavors. This is just the warm-up for his debut album, My 1st Chemistry Set dropping October 15th.
Loaded Lux- Bout My Money
It’s been good times for mixtapes as of late. King Chip, Boldy James, Lil Wayne and this guy, Loaded Lux, all dropped off tapes recently (plus others, see our mixtape section). Loaded Lux is known as a battle rapper, but that doesn’t mean he can’t come correct on a mixtape. “Bout My Money” is the first song off the tape, and it’s good one to start with—a mesmorizing beat and solid bars will draw you in.
King Chip- Police In The Trunk (Prod. By Rami & Dat Da Genius)
Fans have been waiting on King Chip’s new project, 44108, for a while now, and it finally dropped this past week. Chip has several strong mixtape projects behind him (The Cleveland Show, Gift Raps included), so 44108 has quite a bit to live up too (we’ll let you be the judge on that). Chip keeps his go-to producers on this project, including Rami, who has a part in this track alongside Dot Da Genius. The result is a hard, dope beat worthy of Chip’s story-telling. Over the production, Chip tells the story of getting a “bitch-ass” officer in the trunk of his car, and the two producers incorporated real-life elements to match whatever it is Chip is saying.
Project Pat aka Juicy J's older brother dropped a new tape this week just like many others on UA. If Juicy J's recent Stay Trippy wasn't enough ignorant tracks for you, Project Pat comes through with 26 more, one of which, is this collaboration between the two brothers. There's nothing unexpected about this effort, as the former Three 6 Mafia rappers go in over Drumma Boy production and rap about all their cash (not to mention, busting guns, drinking lean, the usual).
HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
