There’s nothing like hearing some kid younger than me scream at me about his swag for no reason. From day one I thought Rae Sremmurd were a nuisance and the chorus to “Start A Party” off their sophomore album legit reminds me of Aaron Carter. Rae Sremmurd is this generation’s trap Kriss Kross. “Black Beatles” is catchy I guess, and birthed the now-viral-yet-probably-soon-to-be-over #MannequinChallenge, but Rae Sremmurd still don’t have any real importance for me yet other than more music that sounds like “No Flex Zone,” if that’s anything that anyone wants.
I first thought Lance was an alternate persona of Jay Rock, but apparently he’s a whole other guy signed to T.D.E. Releasing his debut record , it might be the only thing we get from T.D.E. for awhile as Ab-Soul and SZA struggle to release their records over “conflicts” with the label. Lance stands out from the rest of T.D.E. as being a singer more than a rapper, which we just got the first taste of with Isaiah Rashad’s record. Skiiwalker is a pretty odd dude here on Introverted Intuition, and most of the time I don’t even to know what to make of it. A very ethereal project, the record passes off more as organized weed haze to me than a solid album.
Who would have thought a record like this would ever happen? We’re all talking about how crazy it is that A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul came back or that Kanye West and Drake might make a collaborative record that I completely slept on a Soulja Bot and Bow Wow collab. Sure, it’s nowhere near the same level, but just because it’s not as exciting doesn’t mean it’s not as surprising. Like most rappers who are known for being more unpredictable than being on top, Soulja Boy and Bow Wow release god knows what here. Ignorant is right, it almost seems like they haven’t even heard of their own irrelevance.
