Them goddamn Denim Guinness Boys, FAT TONY (RAPPER/HOUSTON MAGNATE) & TOM CRUZ (GAMESPITTER/PRODUCER/LITERALMASTERCHEF), fresh off of Rabdargab (and Screwdargab !) team up once again to flash skill on ducks like Maverick with the Russian Mig with a monument to the true potential MAXIMUM EXCELLENCE hidden within rap music, DOUBLE DRAGON.
The shit rides pimpin. But it ain’t no lazy rap affair in which you have to really love the niggas ethos, message, or weird way he acts in music videos to comprehend. THE RHYMING IS 1998JIGGAMAN STATUS VS HEY YOUNG WORLD SLICK RICK (WHAT NIGGAS IS SAYING IS EQUALLY AS BRILLIANT AS HOW NIGGAS IS SAYING IT AND THE TIME THEYRE SAYING IT IN).
Welcome to a new fully equipped rap that is solid in every way but REPLETE with surprises/plot twists. Productionwise I hear KURTISBLOW/MANNIEFRESH/WINGS/TIMBALAND rollicking popping/cracking (depending on your allegiances*) energy synthesized through the peculiar video game/dancehall aspects of Tom Cruz’s childhood. There’s space when the vocals need space but the lush landscape of sounds conjures a lot expiremental classic POP references however, I’m sure they’d rather you figure that shit out on your own.
WARNING FOR THE WEAK MINDED/HEARTED: This ain’t no thin chicken stock conceptually weak fuckdown. It’s what you play as the night falls on you and she’s all on you and it’s all on you.
DOUBLE DRAGON is a mixtape so don’t fret, a lot (of girls) get(s( touched on, PLENTYBANGFORTHEBUCK. Now, Let’s talk DOLLAR$ & LOW CLAS$ BRAGGING SHIT: GUESTS INCLUDE:Bun B, Murs, Nick Thorburn, Main Attrakionz, Stunnaman, Telli (Ninjasonik), 10ille, Tecla, Blunt Fang, DMX, & Honey (I’m kidding about those last two). A divine precious non linear lineage and literal ancesty spanning HOUSTON NIGERIA JAMAICA & ATLANTA culminates in next level rhyme/beat evolution. I am a higly paid press agent living in a small apartment so my tone meanders from formal to my stoned post hood internet talk but i assure in total sincerity this is no peanut butter and jelly cornfield shit.
THESE TWO YOUNG BROTHERS CRUSH WATCH THE THRONE, FERRARI BOYZ, BEST OF BOTH WORLDS 1 & 2, & THAT JOSS STONE/DAMIANMARLEY/BONO/KERMITTHEFROG/QUEENLATIFAH COLLABO.
