#HITSBLUNT: French Montana & Curren$y Didn’t Actually Make Two Different Songs Called ‘In The Sun’

I was 100% convinced French and Spitta already made a song called ‘In The Sun’ once back in 2010, but TWIST it turns out that song was actually called ‘So High’ (it’s above). It was the chorus that was throwing me off, plus the song was actually labeled as ‘In The Sun’ on several (unofficial?) occasions. The new song off Casino Life 2 that is actually called ‘In The Sun’ (below) isn’t quite as good as the old one, but still good for summering purposes.

Some new knotty raps from $amhill, who really needs to put an album out already. A small trivial detail stuck with me – the reference to beige cocaine is exactly the kind of knowing minutiae that indicates real experience with the subject, something sorely missing from numerous rappers who boast about drugs they’re clearly not actually selling or doing.

The Almighty $amhill – The Preface EP

This is the world premier of the debut solo release from The Almighty $amhill, who delivers The Preface for you to chew on while he completes work on his first album. With beats from Preservation (Mos Def), RTNC (Timeless Truth), Superstar Dave Dar (Luv NY) as well as some self-produced tracks, the EP offers $am’s brutally honest views on broads, dames and lames. This is that unkut, raw New York rap that lives and breathes the mean streets of The Bronx. -Unkut

 
Very glad to see this come out. $amhill has dropped some tantalizing crumbs of material over the last few years, but never more than sporadic loose tracks. As I’ve mentioned before he’s a great writer with a fairly unique approach to the classic NY style. His rhymes are often obtuse, packed with painful details and smart insights into his own past. His delivery is somehow both frantic and nonchalant at once, it leaves the impression of a man who is very comfortable with his thoughts moving at a mile per minute and expects you to keep up. This is immersive listening, something that demands repeat plays and close attention before revealing itself in full. But it’s worth the effort.
