The newest single for Canadian producer Im’peretiv’s latest project finds G4 Jag and Starz Coleman giving gritty coke era raps over menacing production. It’s like a mix between something you’d hear Griselda on with production that also has a bit of a Madlib sort of feel to it. In other words, think Benny the Butcher meets Bandana with enough distinctness to it that you won’t really sit there and compare it to those elements.
I’m a huge fan of the production because it’s gruff but still smooth. It’s kind of the star of the show here. The bars are also solid as hell, great even. However, the beat is what drew me in initially–even if the bars are what kept me there overall. This one’s one of those tracks you need on this somewhat chilly January day; it’s got the heat that’ll warm you up with the coldness to remind you that you’re in the winter of someone’s life. In other words, it’s one helluva track that you should check out and support dope music in all its forms.
