Tragedy struck the hip-hop world earlier this month when it was announced that up-and-coming Detroit rapper Dex Osama had been shot and killed in his hometown. Dex had received cosigns from rappers like Meek Mill and he recently appeared on a remix alongside Dej Loaf. Soon after his death, it was revealed that Dex had been working on an EP with purported features from both Meek and Dej as well as collabs with Shy Glizzy and Tracy T. He also was apparently working on a mixtape executively produced by Metro Boomin.
Well, his collab with Shy Glizzy, "Hoes," has now surfaced. The song is featured on a mixtape, No Handouts, compiled by DJ LimeLightz, who is Dej Loaf's tour DJ. The new track has Dex coming equipped with monotone cold-hearted lyrics and witty punchlines. It sounds like a cooled-down, less visceral piece of drill music, though the content is just as violent.
Glizzy comes in toward the end of the track, and his verse seems to be cut off. There are also DJ tags on this version of "Hoes," and it sounds as if the song hasn't gone through final mixing procedures.
In any case, it's good to hear Dex's talents next to those of Glizzy. We hope the aforementioned collabs make it to our ears some time soon.
Blow him off his fuckin' porch
That's what he get for tryna ball up in the wrong sport
N*ggas hoes, bitches know
We tote that chopper, bitch, you gotta go
