Making his HNHH debut today is young ATL trapper Jay5, who’s hot off his new “Give Em Hell” collab with Dae Dae as well as his Warning Shots EP, featuring Yakki, Johnny Cinco, and more. It looks like last month’s EP was just the beginning, as Jay is already back with his new single, “Servin,” featuring OG Maco and produced by 30Roc, who has worked extensively with the Quality Control camp this year.
The dusky trap mentality of “Servin” sinks in right away with Maco’s hook, making use of his signature brand of raspy melodicism. His wails are slightly muted, which, combined with the faint sample of the vocal cry that drives the beat, creates a haunting sense of nostalgia for those days when “Servin” was the only constant. The quick, biting raps of Jay5 then fill in all of the painful details.
