ON WAX: JUICE WRLD’S ‘DEATH RACE FOR LOVE,’ YBN CORDAE’S ‘HAVE MERCY,’ AND THE RELEASE OF ‘GERM HAS A DEATH WISH’
ON WAX IS A WEEKLY TAKE UPDATING YOU ON THE POCKET OF CULTURE KNOWN AS HIP-HOP. WE BRING YOU EVERYTHING FROM BREAKING NEWS TO ALBUM DROPS, JAIL TIME AND WHO’S BEEFING WITH WHO.
JUICE WRLD ARRIVES
CHARLIE HEAT REUNITES WITH DENZEL CURRY
Producer Charlie Heat has dropped a single featuring the one and only Denzel Curry—the beat is an island vibe trap banger with Curry killing the mic as usual. The duo always works well together, as Curry’s single titled “SUMO | ZUMO” from TA13OO was one of Curry’s hardest songs yet. Hopefully we’ll hear more songs form the duo, as well as a solo project from Charlie Heat.
WILEY RECRUITS IDRIS, SEAN PAUL, AND STEFFLON DON FOR “BOASTY”
I do recall a time where Idris said that he wanted to work on music with Rocky, however, to see him on this track makes it more of a must-see. The track is powered with fun, with each musician stepping forth and bringing their own zing to the track.
YBN CORDAE’S “HAVE MERCY”
SAUCE WALKA’S “WATERFALL DRIP”
Sauce Gotti returns (although, he never left) to ensure his role of Sauce God. “Waterfall Drip” is true to his style, and it’s hard not to enjoy this track even if you don’t enjoy his music entirely. The track doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, especially with Sauce Walka having a history of going after rappers who might have been sippin’ his sauce a little too much—from rappers like Drake to Famous Dex. The list isn’t as long, but when you see the comparisons, it does make sense; Famous Dex even gave Sauce Walka credit at one point. Either way, The Sauce Factory presents another one for you.
ON WAX SPOTLIGHT: GERM
Promoting his mixtape, Germ Has A Death Wish, Germ hosted a release party at The Berrics. The energy of the crowd was intoxicating, as skaters and misfits alike gathered as one, congregating to the sounds of his new release and the comforting ambient sounds of wheels rolling all over the place. Those in attendance would also include Fat Nick, and altogether the event felt as it should. Not quite a wasteland, but a replica that’s almost convincing if you didn’t look twice and see the bigger picture; one that steeps itself too heavy in nostalgia to quite understand what’s present. The mixtape itself holds up with the vibe, and it’s freeing without being overly carefree with tracks like “UDIGG” and “BUSSDOWN” featuring OhGeesy from Shoreline Mafia. If you haven’t heard it, it’s definitely recommended that you check it out—you just might like it.
Until next time, it’s On Wax.
