Red Hot L.A. Rap Group Baby Stone Gorillas Shares Debut Mixtape

Published

on

Ping-ponging atop West Coast instrumentals with verve and variety, Baby Stone Gorillas are taking over the streets with their powered-up posse cuts. After lighting up their city with fiery singles for almost a year and winning fans like Drake and Shaquille O’Neal, the L.A. crew shares BABYST5XNE GORILLAS, their debut mixtape.

With production from L.A. mainstays like RonRonTheProducer, among others, the new mixtape remains electric throughout its 23 tracks, benefitting from the diverse styles and energies of the crew’s four emcees. EKillaOffDaBlocck attacks instrumentals with an aggressive bark, jumping out of the speakers with his raw nerve swagger. Top5ivee is the crew member most likely to use melody, alternating clever bars with tuneful hooks with an ever-present smirk on his face. P4K‘s laid back delivery places him in a proud lineage of L.A. rappers like Snoop Dogg–he turns heads with his endless witticisms, delivered with a thick Cali accent. 5Much is perhaps the crew’s most unique stylist, packing syllables into tight rhythmic pockets with seemingly little effort. All four emcees make themselves known on the tape’s “B$G Intro,” demonstrating what separates them from the pack and from each other.

The new mixtape is home to recent single Do It Up,” an electro-funk throwback with a hook from Wallie The Sensei, as well as 22 new songs, each with the potential to become a new West Coast classic. Armed with a beat from RonRon, “Stick Squeezers” finds the BSG boys recruiting Zona Man and Slumlord Trill to tear up a sample of Too $hort & Lil Jon’s “Couldn’t Be A Better Player.” On “With That,” the four-man crew toe-tag a bass-heavy beat as they explain why they’re the coolest apes in the jungle, and on “In A Circle,” they nab BandGang Lonnie Bands to add some Detroit sauce. Though they specialize in hard-hitting street stories, BSG is equally adept at introspection, as shown in project highlights like “Keep Goin” and “Felt A Lot Of Pain.” With additional appearances from 1TakeJayBla$ta, and many more, BABYST5XNE GORILLAS is available everywhere via EMPIRE.

The four members of Baby Stone Gorillas have known each other since they were 10-years-old, and were friends far before they dreamed of music stardom. The rappers have distinct styles and roles: 5Much brings a hustler’s mentality and vents about his life, while EK packs the energy. P4K is the proud instigator known for slick-talking raps, while Top5ivee often comes up with B.S.G.’s catchy hooks. Last summer, the group’s self-titled video racked up views in the millions, precipitating a winning streak of viral singles that included the Pitchforkapproved Military,” which earned airplay on Drake’sOVOSound Radio, and Untouchable” ft. RJMrLA, catching the attention of Shaquille O’Neal.

With the new BABYST5XNE GORILLASthe four South L.A. spitters are excited to show the world that they’re the kings of the jungle in SoCal and beyond.

Trapland Pat Keeps on Truckin’ in “Road 2 Riches” Video

With star qualities as unmistakable as his wide-eyed, iced out smile, Trapland Pat is cruising in a lane of his own. Returning with a full tank of gas and an endless supply of tropical vibes, the South Florida sensation shares his new video single, “Road 2 Riches.” Anchored by an instrumental from frequent collaborator Pepper Jack Zoe that makes steel drums resonate like organ pipes in a cathedral, “Road 2 Riches” finds Pat on a Waze route to the bag, with no time for detours: “They like, ‘Trap, you should scam,’ I’m like, ‘Scam why?’/23 hours for them birdies, that’s a damn job.” 

The KillerJack-directed video for “Road 2 Riches” leans into its automotive imagery at full throttle, as Pat’s diamond-studded smirk and Peterbilt rig turn I-95 into Ice Road Truckers. Making a pit stop to stock up on essentials like styrofoam cups and bundles of Black and Milds before embarking on his journey, Pat’s locks in once he gets behind the wheel. He’s got a long way to go and a short time to get there, but he’s money-bound, so watch Trapland run it up.

“Road 2 Riches” follows recent cuts like “Z Land” and “Vibes” as Pat’s first new music since he shared the acclaimed Trapnificent mixtape this past summer. Pat’s first release for Bang Biz and Alamo Records, Trapnificent rolls out the red carpet for a tasteful selection of guests, including Fredo Bang, who signed Pat to his imprint Bang Biz and appears twice on the tape, Sacramento street hero Mozzy, NYC Winners Circle maestro Eli Fross, and Memphis’ own BIG30Trapnificent earned praise from Pitchfork, who called the project a “zippy distillation of his regional roots” and said that Pat’s music is “extremely regionally and culturally specific, like so much exciting and promising new rap music.”

Ready to bring his searing street raps to a larger audience, Trapland Pat has the goods to be Broward County’s next big star.
