Rx Papi and Topside – “My Lil Brother”
Rx Papi and producer Topside aren’t conscious of simply how good of a duo they’re. Dope Offers & File Gross sales Quantity 2 is their new joint EP, and much like the primary version it seems like a compilation thrown along with a shrug and dumped into the ether. I perceive that Rx Papi is at present in jail in order that they’re working with what they’ve, however the songs on the EP are manner too scorching to be handled like afterthoughts. Over a handful of Topside’s most ominous-sounding KLC-inspired grooves, Papi’s vocals are impressively extra restrained than they’ve ever been. On stand out “My Lil Brother,” the Rochester rapper sounds stressed: “I acquired two completely different warrants in my lil brother title/If I get pulled over I’m giving them one other title,” he raps—every drug-dealing story has a sense of exasperation. And yeah, on just a few of the tons of of songs Rx Papi has with out Topside yow will discover an identical vitality, however the producer’s gloomy funk emphasizes the downbeat temper of all of it.
With artists releasing songs at a quick and livid tempo, it’s tough for the common hip-hop head to maintain observe of all of it—regardless of how tapped in they’re. That’s why we created The Ones, a every day submit to spotlight the tune you have to hear.
