Bay Area Spotlight: @SOBxRBE ‘s “Carpoolin'” Is Crazy, Hectic Fun

Published

on

Amidst the tremendous amount of success that SOB x ROE has been having lately, it’s a perfect time for the collective to come together for new music. And that’s just what they did; they announced that a new project called Gangin is set to drop on Feb. 23. In addition to the revelation, they also released the first track from the upcoming collaboration, an insane single called “Carpoolin’.”

Think “Bay Area Bounce x 10” and you’ll get a rough idea of what this song entails. It’s fast and unforgiving, brutal and honest. But it’s also a damn good time. The collective sounds like they’re having fun amidst all of the success that they’re seeing, and it’s good to hear their camaraderie. You can tell that, outside of music, these guys are real friends. Another thing that works for this release is the production by Joe$$. It’s like he took a classic West-Coast beat, played it 4 times fast, then placed random scratches in it. Describing it shouldn’t take more than one word: brilliant. Hopefully, the collective notes the chemistry they have with this producer so we can get similar music in the future.

Listen to “Carpoolin'” below.

Spotlight: @PhilthyRichFOD , @OfficialYID , and @_EastsidePeezy Make Magic On “Real Niggas Only”

Published

on

Philthy Rich and Eastside Peezy have already shown that when they get together, the pair makes quality music. Add in YID and his raw flow to the proceedings and you have the recipe for a good time. On Philthy and YID’s recently released Sem City Kane City, the three come together for a distinctly West Coast-style banger that adds hints of Detroit’s iciness in the mix. Each rapper gets their turn at the unique production that’s as much brash as it is smooth. YID especially goes off, showing just how good he is amongst the two rap veterans surrounding him. He brings the quotables hard, adding a chilling element to his verses that has to be seen to be believed.

Bay Area Spotlight: @PlayboyFreud & @ODValhentine Have A Slow-Paced Banger On Their Hands With “Another Bag”

Published

on

We love good slow-paced, heavy-handed trap bangers. It’s how we work out our car speakers, stretching their limits to see just how much bass that they can handle. With  Playboy Freud and OD Valhentine’s new track “Another Bag,” we have found our next fascination that will destroy our speakers. It’s a plodding release that packs enough rattling 808s to dismantle the ground that we stand on. It’s a slow-moving, hell of a beat that we just can’t get enough of.

Both Freud and Valhentine have some fire verses as well that do the epic beat justice. In short, loyalty is prioritized above everything else. If you can’t show it, you don’t deserve to be around. We definitely agree there.
