Fredo Santana returns today with a dark street cut, "Better Play It Smart," grabbing a haunting beat from DY of 808 Mafia. Santana has been an important asset to the drill movement, but lately, he's been slowing down his records, giving them a drugged-out feel while experimenting with different types of emotions rather than relying on all-out aggression.
Many of those around him talk a big game, but on his latest record, Santana issues a relatively calm warning, reminding them that they "better play it smart" if they want to last in these streets. "Better Play It Smart" is another solid track that's proof of the exciting collaborative energy that exists between Atlanta and Chicago. Everyone from Sosa to Herbo has been enlisting Atlanta's top young producers, and it has resulted in some of their best music to date.
