Payroll Giovanni of Doughboyz Cashout, the collective formerly signed to Jeezy's CTE, is making major solo moves this year, and he now stands as one of the hottest artists in Detroit. His recent success wouldn't have been possible without Cardo, one of the most reliable producers in the game. The Dallas-based producer reached out to Giovanni earlier this year, and they soon cranked out a joint mixtape, Big Bossin' Vol. 1, which has been met with rave reviews. The tape was noticed far outside of Detroit, as Cardo's lush productions had a West Coast appeal to them, which was nicely complemented by the summertime narrative put together by Giovanni. Six months after Big Bossin, Giovanni has dropped another tape: Sosa Dreamz. The title is inspired by the famed kingpin from "Scarface." It's unclear how many credits Cardo has on Sosa Dreamz, though it's assumed he contributes extensively as he has been keenly promoting the tape. He produced "Came Up Off Work," the single that dropped right before the tape with an accompanying video (watch below).
Sosa Dreamz features Drey Skonie, B-Mo Maine, Clay Baby, Tamara Jewel, Cashout Calhoun, and Big Quis. Payroll has also announced that his next project, Giovanni's Way, is on the near horizon. Cardo is expected to play a major part in that one, too.
