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.”

Huntsville Alabama: Rocket City (Mixtape, 2009)

Since we got some new music from 3 Huntsville alums today, and we’re headed into the long weekend, seems like a good occasion to dust off this old gem put together by the esteemed Traps N’ Trunks crew. This is a great time capsule of the Hunstville scene at the time, tons of talented artists on here – G-Side and ST 2 Lettaz solo, Mr Marcellus, Jackie Chain, Kristmas, PT with his group Untamed, several members of the PRGz, etc etc… The sound leans toward trap but this was a multifaceted scene, so country rap tunes and space age excursions on 26″ rims crop up as well. As good a place to start as any if you’re not familiar with this city’s fertile rap history.

G-Side still dope as fuck. Might be my favorite Block Beattaz beat in some time too. A new album from these guys is slated for next year.

A new loosie from ST that I never got around to posting last week. Considering this as a taster for the long-promised Doobie Brothaz album which is allegedly coming soon, f’real f’real this time.
