Last fall, we introduced you to DMV trio Black COAL via their dope mixtape THR-O-NE (three oh one), and today, they return with a serious earworm. "Ace Mitch Rico" is named for the three main characters in "Paid In Full," as you can probably glean from the artwork.
Produced by MJ Drama, the track features a hard-snapping beat that somewhat recalls Boi-1da's RZA-indebted "0-100" instrumental. This is the type of beat that's like a pop-up fly ball to rappers in the outfield -- almost too easy to flow over -- but even still, the three MCs in Black COAL each stand out with distinct, undeniably great verses.
And I'm there, same old shit, East Coast stint
Beats protest, please don't copy off him
I'm addicted to me stylin' like a pilot with no flyin'
Just to get get down with a giant you gon' have to learn the science
