Spotlight: @PhilthyRichFOD Owns @JODYHiGHROLLER On “Big Ballers”

Published

on

When we listen to Riff Raff – which isn’t often, admittedly – we do so for a good laugh. He’s not a traditional lyricist by any means; he values shock and aesthetic versus crafting complex lines. And there’s nothing wrong with that at all, we do listen to Lil B. So while it may not be our particular cup of tea, we can see how people like his music and support him. In addition to rapping, he’s a likeable guy, plus he has an outrageous personality that’s just magnetic.

Riff Raff made one of the best moves he’s made in years. For his new song “Big Ballers,” he enlisted Philthy Rich and DollaBillGates to help ground his zaniness and expand his audience. The results?

WHOOOOOOO!!!!!!

That’s our reaction after playing Philthy’s verse initially. Over the outlandish extension of trap production that Raff so eloquently provides, Philthy lets loose with a swaggerful verse that practically screams “This is my song, go away now” to the other two artists. It’s, seriously, the centerpiece of the song, for good measure. Without it, “Big Ballers” would feel incomplete; Riff Raff is a little too crazy for the grounded (yet spacey) production to make sense of it. Philthy, once again, shows his ability to be the glue that binds the tracks together.

Check out “Big Ballers” below and fast forward to Philthy’s verse. You’re welcome.

Derrty Dollaz and Lil Trev drop a summer anthem with “Gang With Me”

Published

on

Derrty Dollaz’s refrain on “Gang With Me” has all of the makings of an earworm. I’ve listened to it three times straight so far and I can’t stop saying “Gang With Me” with the same vocal inflection and pitch that he did throughout the cut. Both Dollaz and Lil Trev have something serious on their hand, a hit with all of the makings of a viral anthem. The production is clean and solid whilst the verses are hard-hitting and spectacular. I don’t want to call it to early, but I think this may be the song of the summer.

Lil Pete pays respects to the dead in “Go Like That”

Published

on

Lil Pete’s one of the Bay Area’s hottest rising artists. He has an air of youthful vitality around him, something that makes his music seem much more contemporary and authentic, then those who try to fake the funk. His new cut “Go Like That” is a serious affair, about the fallen and not wanting to head down that same path, but it also encapsulates that vitality that makes it sound somewhat uptempo. There’s nothing wrong with that – it works as a catchy tune that you’ll want to play back time and time again. But I can’t help but wonder if that was his intention.

Cartel Dough drops the video of the year with “Hoes Everywhere”

Published

on

Here’s another case of prioritizing a visual that makes the song itself more effective. Cartel Dough’s video for “Hoes Everywhere” is so cleanly shot, making it an instant contender for video of the year. The slow-mo cuts of bouncing ass, Ferraris and Rolls Royces riding down the street, along with the creative use of color in certain frames go a long way in increasing our opinion of the song. “Hoes Everywhere” is good as a tune itself, but the video is ultimately what sells it.
