<—- Week 19: Captain Murphy – “Crowned”
Week 21: Kitty – “Asari Love Song” —->
Hey everyone. RobBarracuda here, and it’s time to talk about the newest release from the 2016 Adult Swim Singles Program.
You know, I’m probably the wrong person to be talking about this song.
One of the bigger upcoming acts in the current rap scene is the Atlanta-based duo Rae Sremmurd, who hit it big in 2015 with their debut album SremmLife (which spawned the top 40 hits “No Flex Zone” and “No Type”) and followed it up SremmLife 2 a couple of months ago. There’s nothing much to explain about their style as it’s the typical “turn up” kind of rap music you’d hear in the club on a Friday night. This kind of music (especially the more low-key style that Rae Sremmurd use) is not really all that appealing to me, as much of it is too dull to make me want to turn up. Anyway, like most rappers, the two are not alone in their endeavors, having assembled a collective of other up-and-coming rappers that they have close ties with: the Sremmlife Crew. They bring us this week’s free single, “Ball Out The Lot”, which features crew member BoBo Swae and Rae Sremmurd member Swae Lee. Do you like trap beats, lyrics about fucking the sexiest bitches in the club, and bragging about how awesome your life is? Well “Ball Out The Lot” is just for you. It’s not the worst thing ever, since despite the extremely dull monotonous nature of the song, there is one part of the beat that I do like: the haunting woman’s singing voice in the background throughout the track which adds a great melody to an otherwise typical rap beat. You can stream “Ball Out The Lot” down below, and be sure to download it and the other released singles right here.
