Rap is changing all the time, but somehow the influence of Texas' screw rap continues to have a hold on the minds of the new generation. You can't throw a rock without hitting a song that uses the classic Juicy J "yeah hoe" sample.
Trae Tha Truth has been continuing this tradition for some time. A few days ago, he dropped "Barre," where he rapped about his come up and working with artists like DJ Screw. His new song is a standard flex rap lyrically, but Trae's smooth as butter voice and the minor key production are full of nostalgia. Throw in a chopped and screwed vocal sample as the hook and you've got yourself a real banger.
