2 months later and there is finally enough decent hip-hop for a mixtape. Lets be honest though, all you were listening to was Watch the Throne, right? Yeah, I know I heard “N***as in Paris” coming out your car stereo.
The recipe is certainly there for this to be my favorite Nark in the past for year. Posse cuts are plentiful with collaborative cuts led by Fabolous, Cory Mo, Big K.R.I.T. Two of my favorite emcees Childish Gambino (“Bonfire”) and Common (“Blue Sky”) return with strong efforts from their next respective releases. Clifford wastes no time after his release from a halfway house on his street single w/Big K.R.I.T. (“I’m Flexin’) and a 2Chainz remix that gets constant play in the A. Notice a trend? Lots of Big K.R.I.T. tracks on this edition (and a bonus cut). From remixes to production, K.R.I.T. is one of the great hopes in hip-hop. Remember when I mentioned how K.R.I.T. would sound at home in 1994? Well, “Money On The Floor” shows how smooth he sounds next to legends 8Ball & MJG. Lastly, STS offers up one of the most sly premises of the year in “Cliche”. Hit rewind a couple times to make sure you get it all.
