Al-Doe, Boldy James, and Vado want you to know how serious the grizzle stays. With this dark, Queensbridge circa ’02, type production; expect some aggressive shit (Al-Doe gets right into that with his gruff, wolverine-in-a-sack-full-of-fire-ants approach to spittage), or a nice contrast when paired with Boldy’s laid-back earnestness (with the verse he originally let off over the phone on Fresh Out The Box). Our type of morning wake-up.
Al-Doe “5:46 AM” (Feat. Boldy James & Vado, Produced by Elemnt)
Young Chris and Cardiak drop their new project, The Revival. Thankfully, us long-time State Prop/YG’z supporters can rejoice as this album is a return to a more aggressive, street-hustle-struggle aesthetic (and/or subject matter). No more Miami nightlife stuff (sorry ladies), with the exception of “So Fly” and “Straight Shots” (go fig), this is pretty much straight Philly blocks and houses (i.e. home invasion)…with a little of that Southern wavy shit you kids like so much. Plenty of good cameos throughout, with exceptional performances by our favorite SP Chain Gang members; Peedi Crakk, Beanie Sigel, Omillio Sparks, and Freeway. I’m not going to post any stand-outs right now, mostly because I’ll be playing a shitload of them on Fresh Out The Box this week and next (and next)…and also because the whole thing is just a click away.
