Paypal-ing click farms in Bangladesh is for a certain type of person the only way to make sense of Swipey routinely hitting several hundreds of thousands of views and what they judge to be Swipey’s wider under-visibility. More important is the fact that people who regularly say and think things like that are also the ones most likely to snake you. Keep your grass cut.
Swipey, “Dirty” f/ Romilli (2015) prod. by Trizly Beatz(/sup>
the looney tunes drumroll and slide whistle at the very very beginning of this song off Cam’s “Your Local Pharmacist” sound like they could be crossfade artifacts but they’re not. its just there. there’s a casio cha-cha marimba that kicks in about two and a half minutes later – alone, bass killed – there only to introduce a sleepy hitta tae who is selling drogas as strictly business but rapping as a favor, to us. both begrudgingly. don’t ask for the scale.
The first minute+ here before the bass starts its slow steady rip is essentially the audio of the second Purge trailer layerd over slow, late summer b-roll of G$tar n friends skating and pointing guns and getting the cops called on them and I’ve had it playing all day because my heat is completely fucked. The past four years its been like him n his brother have been playing hot potato with being On. Rappers that find their mode again after doing a stint are always the rare exception. Its been about two and half years since Yung Ru’s clinical “In Sqad I Trust” mixtape (“Intro” was Favorite Song #6 of 2012 but favorite songs from favorite tapes change daily) and the most memorable thing he’s dropped since was a verse on Moe’s tape and a freestyle to “Ight Doe”.
G$tar Giorgio, “No Label” f/ Lul Rock (2014)
G$tar on the other hand released a 17-track tape with 16 near-identical songs plus a Leeke Leek Banger and he’s been on a roll since. If Ru and G$tar can get on the same page Manassas will finally be on the map for being home to something other than the World Famous Guapo’s Sauce and Civil War re-enactors.
those midi plastic horns really came to life when i played this in the car earlier. if there were a “pasta pasta named after pasta” line this ji coulda been THE definitive Dikembe Mutombo song for my summer.
