Audio Push are back in the mix with the follow-up to Melange, their last EP in a similar bite-size package. On Somethin 2 Hold You, Oktane and Pricetag dispel the Babylonian tendencies of their rap peers, in leading by example. On "Homage," they ask to be repaid for their steadfastness, with respect; the fruits of their labor come second. The EP's speaks to a willingness to keep their core fans sated while they put the final touches on another full-length project.
Something 2 Hold You runs for 18 minutes. as both Push members exert a quickened lyrical pace, after starting off at midtempo. On "DropHead" they tease midtempo variance before calling things off. They seem unwilling to delve into a resolvent stance for more than a few seconds at a time.
Push close the EP with their trademark battle-rap disposition. "Fully Loaded Cypher" is the XXL Freshman that never was. Oktane delineates a desired "grownup" audience for their music, bereft of social constructions. Pure rap bliss is on tap.
