Menacing rapper & menacing synths.
So it turns out this kodak kid has more than one good song. His first & only mixtape is pretty good all around. The tape’s first track sounds a bit much like a karaoke of a boosie song, but it then reveals kodak’s potential. Given his young age (bio says 16), i’m impressed by how effortless he seems to make different kind of songs, from “boosiesque-emo-raps” & “glory-boyz-style-rap” to “autotune-hit-fo-da-ladiez”, he almost always finds the right formula to make it work. There’s definitely room for maturation & growth. Favorite tracks are “dead time”, “signs” & “project baby 2”.
Kodak Black - “No Flocking” (2014)
Slang in South Florida is as dynamic as the people who live there. Terms for drugs aren’t exempt from this. Flockin (in the context I’ve heard it) that Kodak Black criticizes here is lacing blunt with pretty much anything other than weed.
Despite being from Ft. Lauderdale area, he’s usually got the high pitch voice of a Boosie and flow of alternating Cash Money artists circa 2000. But here he goes for a more subdued tone that matches this haunting beat. If nothing else it shows some strides to work on his rapping as a craft.
Kodak Black raps with enough depth that wouldn’t make you assume he’s only a teenager. That, in addition to his raps not being completely derivative of 90s screw/occult raps from other citites, makes it interesting to follow the kid.
Ace B8gie has that Louisiana sing song flow I can’t help but love (especially with the Young Bleed vocal timbre ). Here is his last tape, features two equally good songs with Tree & Mic terror.
My favorite Wayne album! “Everything” is one of the best songs ever
Incredible album. It’s hard to call anything wayne related “underrated”, but this might be a little. I rarely see it mentionned when discussing wayne’s canon. Even the sqad up mixtapes seem to get more recognition.
Allegedly Gucci Mane’s first video “In My Black Tee” — notice the building to the left is the same building in the infamous freestyle video with DG Yola & OJ The Juiceman
So ready for a KLC album coming out of nowhere.
My antidote to anything Riff Raff.
