Just a quick reminder (or first notification for those not familiar) in order to keep Tae’s name up while he’s locked down
Bro dropped arguably the best material of his career while incarcerated and unable to promote
Analogous to posthumous, there needs to be a term to describe the work released while an artist is imprisoned.* Regardless 2015’s, “Wait for Me” was easily one of my favorite indie rap releases of last year
Spotted on Westtsew’s Soundcloud page. Timestamp says this is at least a year old but I can’t tell if this is from an older release or a leak from an upcoming project. Someone from the area, let me know something. I would love to hear more from where this came.
I wouldn’t consider murder-raps 2Realist’s main dish but paired with Lit Soxx, they’ve delivered what is likely a career benchmark on this one. Never satisfied, I would love if this gained momentum and garnered a remix with other Las Vegas alum (Westtsew, Yowda, ThaLandlord, etc.). Northern California recruits Mozzy, Philthy Rich, and Lil Blood would sound at home here, as well (though your man Mozzy is absolutely ubiquitous at the moment).
Those outside the region (like myself) probably remember the young dude Lit Soxx from Philthy Rich & Pooh Hefner’s, NOBFE Vol. 3 on the track “I Deserve It.” (“Got moms off that wet, she deserve that”)
Earlier material had a hurried flow that veered into Meek Mill-ish territory. Recent verses, however, have the West Vegas representative exacting his flow and lining up to release undoubtedly breakout material for himself in 2016.
I remember hearing a verse from “Land Lord” on Philthy Rich’s, “Sin City to Sem City” in the summer of 2014 and not being able to track him down to hear more until a recent collaboration with Starlito. The plight of having such a general rap moniker is being completely Un-Googlable to the masses who don’t yet know of you.
Obvious lesson learned: Just add the area code/ block number/ hood nickname to the rap handle in question and you will probably happen upon their twitter/’gram profile: @landlord702
