It’s a good day to be a Hip-Hop fan. Along with a surprise album from Kendrick Lamar and a collaborative mixtape from Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, the Internets were also blessed with full-length releases from Dreamville’s Bas and Harlem-bred rhymeslinger Smoke DZA.
The former’s project is titled Too High To Riot, and don 12 tracks with minimal features. Guests are limited to his Dreamville cohorts J. Cole and Cozz, as well as The Hics, leaving Bas to do most of the heavy lifting, displaying his growth as a MC and songwriter every step of the way.
DZA came correct with He Has Risen, the latest addition to his growing cannon of braggadocios street-savy emceeing. A true stickler for lyrical dexterity, the New Yorker finds occupies his comfort zone over production from his longtime collaborator Harry Fraud.
