Fuck yea, a new Outfit EP. This one is meant to spotlight Dallas’ burgeoning underground scene, hence the features on every track – they are all local guys who were features in Mel’s scene report for Noisey.
 

ST 2 Lettaz – Good Day in the Ghetto EP

New solo EP from ST 2 Lettaz of G-Side fame. Produced entirely by The Block Beattaz, of course, but the sound here is harder than on their previous space age exploits. There’s a feature from Clova (so it’s technically a G-Side song), a surprising cross-generational collab with The Migos and Hunstville legend Big Pope, and a nice cameo from another old HSV favorite Mic Strange. All in all good stuff. Read ST’s own description of the project below.
 

“I literally tried to format it like a TV series. This is season one and it’s mostly an introduction to the main character Crooked Letter. He is basically my whole crew I hustled with rolled into one person. All the stories, the personality traits, even his moral compass, it all derived from real people and real events. It’s 30 minutes long and even ends with a cliff hanger. To me, it’s a chance for the listener to let go of real life for a minute and live through my eyes and see what a good day in my ghetto consists of…and in some cases, it ain’t all good. The tape starts out with a nightmare.”

Slow down Alchemist, I’m still not done with Israeli Salad….. Nah I’m kidding, the more instrumentals he puts out the better.

4 new tracks of rap miscreancy from Awful’s most vocal shit talker, all produced by KeithCharles Spacebar. Mostly sparse with emphasis on percussion and a little fuzzy, like something from an old west coast tape mix.
