2017 Recap: Snap Dogg’s Five Best Tracks

Published

on

Snap Dogg has had a phenomenal year, building off an already strong foundation to become one of Detroit’s most notable artists. His trademark energetic delivery, with a steely cool resting facial expression, has pushed him into raps stratosphere, a true rockstar in contemporary times. He’s had a number of releases over the course of 2017 that have blazed through car speakers, so it’s only right to pick our favorites from his going collection of music.

Snap Dogg “Kooda” (6IX9INE Remix)

6IX9INE’s follow up to his immensely popular single “GUMMO” received the Snap Dogg treatment, just as did “GUMMO” itself shortly after its release. Snap Dogg was able to capture the grandiosity of the beat in ways that 6IX9INE couldn’t, showing what true energy can do to a track when the right person hops on it. It should have been given to Snap Dogg, honestly.

“WYA”

The Warriors comes to mind when thinking of “WYA.” The movie’s underlying theme of meaning through violence translates to this song as well, with the refrain hinting at violence if Snap catches the opposition slipping. The production is crisp and serene while the lyrics are dark and violent. The beautiful contrast creates a truly memorable, briskly-paced treat.

“Choppa Sound”

Snap Dogg may not have admitted to being a rockstar, but the frantic energy showcased in his visuals and music says otherwise. “Choppa Sound” showcases both in stunning beauty, with an enormous assortment of guns and villainous grins. What it lacks in depth, it makes up in bombastic arrogance.

“Both Sides”

This dark, piano-dominant song is a cautionary tale of playing both sides of the fence. Snap unleashes a verbal assault that showcases an ability to create flows out of thin air, his machine-gun delivery baring the intricacies in his word choice. He sounds vivacious and angry, dominant yet collective. The way he combines the best of these qualities showcases true star level talent.

“Lit”

 

Combining his raw energy with a more melodic approach is a clear recipe for success. On “Lit,” Snap takes a stab at harmonizing on the chorus; one that works well, I might add. There’s still room for lively adlibs that showcase the young rockstar’s ability to translate his excitement in the studio, but the overall feel of the track is more relaxed than what we usually expect out of him. This leads to perhaps our favorite Snap Dogg track so far.

WARNER BRO’S FILM ‘IN THE HEIGHTS’ DROPS FEATURING NOAH CATALA

Published

on

By

Noah Catala is one of the buzzing new talents in the acting world. His creativity has been seen in more ways than one this year. Now, he is taking those skills to the silver screen in a new Warner Brothers produced film!

On-screen, Noah plays a pesky street artist in Washington Heights. Off-screen, he tears up the dance floor regularly in Spanish Harlem. Luckily, you’ll get to see him do both as Graffiti Pete in Lin Manuel’s  ‘In The Heights.’

The film will hit theaters, and HBO Max, on June 11, 2021, by Warner Bros. It is directed by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) and the film’s script has been written by Quiara Alegría Hudes. 

His skillset is that of someone who has been creating for years. Luckily, he was trained by his mother, Violeta Galagarza, the founder of Keep Rising To The Top (KR3Ts), a 30-year-old nonprofit dance company in Spanish Harlem that turns amateurs into professional top-performing dancers. His mother nicknamed him ‘Noahlot’ because he knew all styles (bboy, popping, locking) at a very young age.

Check out the new trailer here!
